We’re continuing our white paper series looking at different aspects of ODL Live - our realtime route optimisation API. In this latest paper, we’re starting testing of our new integrated prediction engine and we’ve run some tests for a next-day deliveries with same-day collections scenario. This case arises for both parcel couriers and palletised freight networks. We examine how the introduction of predictions changes the structure of the optimised routes and we demonstrate the efficiency savings. This work is part of the on-going development of the prediction engine for ODL Live.
