Locus Dispatcher

Algorithmic route optimization for delivery drivers

4.61/5 (28 reviews)

Locus Dispatcher overview

What is Locus Dispatcher?

Locus Dispatcher is a route optimization tool which uses algorithms and machine learning to automate route planning for delivery drivers and dispatchers. The cloud-based tool also facilitates GPS tracking for monitoring vehicles and providing clients with accurate and real-time ETAs. Locus Dispatcher is an AI-based, RO decision-making platform that considers historical data and multiple real-life constraints and distribution models to deliver optimized routes.

In order to create the most effective and efficient routes for delivery vehicles, Locus Dispatcher uses artificial intelligence and machine learning, taking into account real life factors such as traffic, driver breaks, average stop durations, and more. Locus Dispatcher uses a geocoding engine to convert addresses into geographic coordinates and provide optimal routes, which drivers can view and follow on a visual map. Businesses can also automate the allocation of vehicles and drivers to each job based on volume of the shipment, type of shipment, delivery times, skills, and more, so that each job is assigned to the best suited team member and vehicle.

The GPS functionality of Locus Dispatcher can be utilized by drivers when on the road using a mobile device, and allows drivers to check their route in real time, and ensure they always stay on track. Managers can also benefit from the live GPS tracking feature to track their employees and analyze performance by comparing actual routes vs planned routes. Locus Dispatcher also facilitates self-service driver tracking for customers by providing clients with live updates on their delivery, and proof of delivery can be managed at the drop-off location using the electronic signature capture tool.

Pros
We liked the intelligent order clubbing and it really helped us with scheduling the orders in the most optimal way to improve efficiency. We use it for transferring of stocks between hubs.

Cons
The features available right now are sufficient for our use. And I believe as we move along and gain more experience Locus is going to constantly improve not heir features and usability.

Pros
Routing is one of the core problems that we face in the business of Online retail. Locus helps us seemlessly and helps solve this problem. Some of the good things - Optimum routing - Customisation as required by the business needs - Prompt response by the Support teams

Cons
Not many, one notable improvement area would be that the current dashboard offered for the Customers to monitor regular activity takes significant time to load. We are at a significant scale which requires loads of data to be loaded on to the dashboard. Optimising this would help the end users of this dashboard to seemlessly use the required functionalities.

Benefits

Benefit from AI-based route optimization which automatically plans the most efficient and effective journeys for each job, or group of jobs, taking into account real-life constraints.

Convert written addresses into precise geographic coordinates through EVA using the proprietary geocoding engine, and create optimized routes based on the combination of added addresses.

Get recommendations for the most appropriate vehicle for each route with the vehicle allocation engine which automatically selects vehicles based on shipment type, shipment volumes, delivery times, and more.

Allocate orders based on historical data, priority, rider skills, and on-ground constraints such as traffic. Locus also takes rider preferences into consideration when routing jobs to them.

Monitor drivers and compare their actual route to the planned route if drivers go off track. Managers can re-route drivers in real time and benefit from dynamic ETA calculations. Customers can also track their delivery with live updates.
