Harnessing the Power of Bees to Optimize Deliveries to Businesses & Consumers

·2 min read

App Optimizes Delivery Saving Time, Gas and Money

Especially now when so many people are relying on deliveries and e-commerce, etc. In order to get items to customers more efficiently, and with more and more of the population relying on delivery services due to the pandemic’s ‘new normal,’ it’s necessary for fleets to be optimized in every sense of the word, especially in efficiency and their carbon footprint.

Unlike planning with Google, Waze or other route mapping apps, there is now a specific route-oriented app that handles route optimization including minimization of drive times, vehicle capacities, schedules, destinations. The Routific app does all this and more with an algorithm inspired by the way bees seek out nectar. Marc Kuo, founder and CEO of Routific, applies that concept to the world of logistics, by figuring out how a fleet of delivery vehicles can most optimally deliver packages to businesses or consumers. For example, DoorDash, with the help of Routific, generated efficient delivery routes for up to 100,000 orders a day, and up to 20,000 deliveries from a single store on a single day --converting those 20k deliveries into 2257 routes, 8-10 drops per route, a process which is now completely automated and completes within 45 minutes. other companies have seen this type of outcome as well.

Benefits include:

  • The company focuses on efficiency and saving businesses on operating costs by nearly 40%.

  • In 2019 alone, Routific helped delivery businesses around the world save 11,322 tons of greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of planting more than 500,000 trees.

  • Analytics & Reporting

  • Live Tracking & Proof of Delivery

  • Specific Driver App

Philanthropy:

  • Since the pandemic started Routific has let more than 400 startups use the platform for free as they pivot to cater to an at-home consumer base. Routific also works with all over the world SMBs which are powering their local economies in a time where it’s never been more important.

Trusted by hundreds of businesses around the world, Routific's route optimization algorithm has been in development for more than a decade.

Routific optimizes routes based on real-world factors like time windows, vehicle capacities,delivery types, priority stops, driver speeds, driver shift times, driver breaks, and more.
