- Improve the delivery system of Santos Andirá;
- Decrease the goods delivery time.
- Automate the generation of delivery routes.
The generation of delivery routes at Santos Andirá was done manually with the use of road maps, a time consuming process and very inaccurate. This form of working caused several route errors, causing some disruption to Santos Andirá such as: delay in deliveries, customer complaint and also an increase in cost each time our vehicles leave. The choice of the Avant router sprung from the need to make the delivery process more agile and efficient.
Santos Andirá was the pioneer company with the Avant router, contributing to the development and the improvement of the solution over time. “One of the major differentials in choosing Avant was the ease of handling and the immediate availability of support from personnel at Veltec”.
- Agility in the process of routing.
