With traffic conditions worsening every day in the city and suburbs, with lower qualified labor due to the high demands for skilled people and therefore less training time, with the need for better security methods due to the tremendous rise in thefts, and last but not least, with more volume to be handled than ever in the history of this nation, the need for better controlling systems to optimize the utilization of vehicles used in the multistop operation of the freight delivery function is greater than ever before.
A new and simple method is being developed to meet this demand. It consists of a Real Time Graph System, enabling the operation managers and dispatchers to compare the work progression to pre-established standards, and to manage dynamically as the distribution process progresses during the working day.
