Delivery Co cuts mileage with Optrak

Delivery Co has implemented Optrak’s vehicle routeing software, helping it to cut fleet mileage by 25 per cent, as well as reducing costs and boosting its environmental credentials.

The software has been used on a consolidation and rationalisation project for the Robert Horne Group, The Paper Company and the Howard Smith Paper Group.

Delivery Co uses Optrak to analyse and determine the most efficient way to organise and rationalise fleet and depot operations in each region it operates, involving fleet mix and configuration, how many drivers are needed and what shifts they need to work.

John Ball, director of Delivery Co, said: “The Robert Horne Group had been successfully using Optrak for 14 years and this experience and the established relationship with Optrak was the perfect base for the Delivery Co development. 

“Optrak has enabled us to reduce our vehicle fleet size by 10 per cent, make significant cost savings and substantially reduce our impact on the environment.  Optrak is an essential element in the regional consolidation process and has been integral to the success of the Delivery Co operations.”
