NAFA To Present Webinar On Route Optimization, December 2

Now more than ever, public and private sector organizations around the world are looking to create efficiencies within their operational processes. One such tool available to fleet/transportation managers is the use of route optimization techniques. NAFA will present a webinar on route optimization on Thursday, December 2 at 12 p.m. (EST).  An exclusive benefit of membership, this webinar is free to all NAFA Members and Affiliates and designed for those who want to explore this important emerging topic.

Traditionally, route managers used paper maps and push pins to design efficient routes. With the availability of accurate and state-of-the-art street level mapping, and sophisticated route optimization algorithms, now route managers can design thousands of routes traveling millions of miles every year in hours as opposed to weeks using route optimization software. And better yet, they are more efficient as the algorithms do the number crunching and go through millions of permutations and combinations to find an optimal solution. Route managers can now plan and optimize their future routes all the way from same-day (in case of more dynamic and on-call types of operations) up to many months in advance (for static routes with different customer service frequencies).

Speakers will include: Dr. Surya Sahoo, Ph.D., P.E., President & Chief Executive Officer at Institute of Information Technology (IIT), and Sumit Agarwal, Director-Marketing, Sales & Business Development at IIT.
In this session, fleet/transportation managers and affiliates will learn the following about route optimization:
1.  How to save 10-30% in fleet operations costs.
2.  Other benefits of this sophisticated technology. 
3.  How it complements the more popular accompanying technologies like GPS tracking/automatic vehicle location, scheduling/dispatching, on-board computers, and in-vehicle navigation solutions.

FREE to NAFA Members and Affiliates as an exclusive benefit of membership!
