Route optimization analytics to determine the most profitable route plan
We collected data from the oil and gas client’s logistics systems and analyzed it using cluster analysis, conjoint analysis, scenario analysis, and what-if analysis, to measure their current performance in terms of the number of sites/nodes in each route, total distance traveled, delivery frequency and costs, transit time through weekdays and weekends, delivery standards for time-critical delivery. Based on this, we provided suggestions on optimizing the route plan.

Significant reduction in logistics costs
The oil and gas client utilized our model for identifying alternative routes and cargo mix to cover the maximum number of clients across the route and decide the right set of stops in the route. This reduced the total distance traveled and transit time while delivering a significant reduction in cost for the client, to come at par with the market averages.
