Free route optimisation tool from Trakm8 during crisis

Trakm8 is offering fleets free access of its Insight Optimisation platform to support operators during the crisis.

Trakm8’s Insight Optimisation tool can be used for free at any point during the lockdown, with no contractual obligations thereafter

Aimed at small- and medium-sized enterprises, the tool enables operators to maintain and improve the efficiency of operations through AI-based route planning; a particular benefit when a number of supply chains are seeing demand spikes, from personal protective equipment to grocery items.

The Insight Optimisation intuitive route planning solution maximises the concept of useable data, rather than planning a simple A to B route. It takes into account the size and capabilities of the fleet and applies them efficiently to the task at hand, whether that’s five or five thousand deliveries a day.

According to Trakm8, it’s proven to cut fuel expenditure by up to 20% and increase productivity by up to 33%.

Insight Optimisation works with almost every available computer system – all you need to get started with its web-based portal is an up-to-date internet browser. The only file a fleet manager will need to upload is a csv, which you’re able to open in any text editor or spreadsheet tool.

Fleets making use of the free offer will also have no contractual obligations thereafter.

Peter Mansfield, group sales and marketing director at Trakm8, said: “At critical moments like these, it’s paramount that supply chains keep moving and goods get where they need to be. Supply chains and the logistics professionals are just as integral as our treasured NHS staff in keeping our country moving, and they need extra support.

“By making our market-leading route planning product free to anyone who needs it, we hope to provide some extra support to those on the front line. We are proud to be a British business supporting our country in these difficult times.”
