O2I Helped a Logistics and Security Services Company Dynamically Collect Telemetry Data from Vehicles
A global secure logistics, cash management, and security services provider with revenue over 3.9 billion USD, having more than 1000 fleet, approached Outsource2india for a customized route optimization solution. Being predominantly present in North America and Latin America the company deals with highly secure assets for delivery in over 20000 retail locations.
It was hard to determine the most efficient route in an area that does not follow a grid street pattern. Drivers would end up driving right across a delivery location, then end up backtracking later in the day. There was also the security concern as personal assets were involved. The main source of data was telemetry data from vehicles, GPS, and other dynamic data. There were also some realtime constraints such as drivers, field staff, managers, clients, and many more. Besides, there was an immediate requirement of properly planned routes, and the challenge was not the optimization alone but the possibility of multiple routes for a destination with varying environmental factors.
We captured data in real time, stored in a Big Data cluster, and achieved the following results -
- Optimized routes and fewer operational trucks
- Helped in raising alerts and warnings on potential fraud cases
- Provided real-time visibility into delivery status for dispatch
- Reporting on security and compliance of delivery, image/voice analytics
The solution was implemented successfully and it not only led to an increase in the revenue for the client, but also led to reduction in security incidents. The benefits derived out of the solution were immediate and measurable. Drivers could cover more routes in a single day, which ultimately lead to operational effectiveness. The overall positive impact on the operational performance was observed and appreciated by the client.
