ODL Live now supports route optimisation for trucks as well as cars, bikes, pedestrians etc!
For trucks, particularly large ones, it’s better to stick to major roads and avoid narrow residential streets where possible. You can control this in the new release of ODL Live, as shown in this picture. The car route goes more or less direct from A to B via the side streets, whereas the truck takes a longer route following the main roads, only going into the network of smaller streets to reach its destination.
Our truck and car routing profiles also account for rush hours, dependent on urban density, which are used throughout the entire optimisation process. ODL Live can plan deliveries for next day, same day and on-demand all in a single engine, and at scale.
