With 18 stores around The Netherlands, the main office and distribution center in Zwolle is always very busy. totaalBED is a busy and upcoming company, that was looking for an efficient and automatic navigational system that would allow the company to keep growing, and to provide the best service to their customers. uServ built an automatic navigational system in which the delivery of orders, using 9 trucks, are planned as efficient as possible.
This is a navigational planning system. Thanks to navigation optimisation, routes are planned automatically for a whole fleet of vehicles. This can be done for a day or even for a period of three months. This way, precious time and money can be saved.

If the delivery date and time does not suite the customer, a new planning will be made so that there are no gaps originate within the route.
The system has the following advantages:
