Optrak4 for Commercial Waste
Optrak4 for Commercial Waste is an enhanced version of Optrak4`s vehicle routing and scheduling software, designed specifically for the needs of commercial waste and recycling collection, covering a variety of waste types, from standard commercial products such as paper and glass, to specialist types such as food waste and waste oil.
• Load Customisation: Optrak4 can be tailored to fit your specific load requirements/specification with customised loading modules that takes into account the physical characteristics of the vehicle and ensures that the loads will fit. These specifications are then included in the optimisation process - tracking the expected contents of the compartments to ensure your trips are properly organised and the collector has complete control of the delivery process.
• Customer Requirements: Optrak4`s optimiser can be designed to fit the delivery profile/requirements of your customers. By prioritising customers according to days left it will ensure that the really urgent orders take top priority while still being able to combine these with less urgent, but close-by, orders for efficient trips. To help the planner visualise the requirements, Optrak4`s map display can colour-code the orders based on date.
• Frequency Planning: Optrak4 can also be used to generate the fixed plans in instances where you might hold contracted cycles for the different customers. The schedules are then used to generate daily collection rounds that are uploaded into driver`s hand-held computers for proof-of-collection and food safety legislation compliance.
Optrak offers a wide range of consultancy engagements on the issues presented by complex industries with atypical distribution and routing challenges, such as commercial or specialist waste collection.
Addressing strategic and operation problems, Optrak`s consultancy team works closely with the customer to identify routing efficiency opportunities and maximise utilisation of resources through simulation analysis of current operations; utilising its Optrak4 software to ensure a real-world modelling of transport operations.
Optrak`s consultancy engagements are led by Tim Pigden, Managing Director, Optrak.
