ORTEC releases routing suite focussing on supply chain collaboration

ORTEC, who specialise in mathematical optimisation technology and advanced analytics, has released its latest ORTEC Routing Suite.

Optimising the daily operations of logistics companies, including retailers, shippers, fourth party logistics providers (3PLs and 4PLs), and logistics service providers (LSP), the Routing Suite can dynamically schedule deliveries, resources and loads.

The Suite consists of ORTEC’s flagship logistical advanced planning and scheduling product, ORTEC Routing & Dispatch, leading industry variants, ORTEC Inventory Routing for fuels, gas and chemical logistics and ORTEC Service Planning for B2B and B2C service providers.

Daniel Taylor, Product Manager for the ORTEC Routing Suite, explained: “New collaborative portals, such as the Carrier Portal and Driver App, provide planners and other users with easy access and collaboration tools to interact with the planning process.

“Innovations in our optimisation engines allow users to consider factors in the planning and scheduling process that customarily lie outside the route planning domain.

“This is made possible through the new forecasting engine for VMI customers in ORTEC Inventory Routing, the customer time-slot booking engine in ORTEC Service Planning and the depot departure smoothing algorithm in ORTEC Routing & Dispatch.”
