Route Planning Software Case Study: RouteSavvy Increases Global Aircraft Dispatch’s Productivity between 200 & 300%
Amr Abdelwahab, of Global Aircraft Dispatch, relates that since his company started using RouteSavvy, its delivery fleet’s productivity has increased between 200 and 300%. “This is because the [RouteSavvy] route planning software lets us deliver more bags & suitcases per day now,” he points out. Whereas GAD used to deliver between 2,000 and 3,000 bags per year. Once Global Aircraft Dispatch deployed RouteSavvy, it significantly increased the number of lost suitcases it could deliver to travelers. Mr. Abdelwahab forecasts that Global Aircraft Dispatch will deliver 10,000 bags annually, more than 3 times what it was delivering prior to putting RouteSavvy in play.
“RouteSavvy also saves on fuel and it has shortened the workday of our drivers so the company is paying less overtime,” he notes.
“One of the main reasons we chose RouteSavvy was its ease of use,” Mr. Abdelwahab points out. “We were able to quickly and easily incorporate the RouteSavvy code into our own application. And within two hours of writing that code, we were able to optimize the routes for delivery of passenger bags.
“Yet another reason we chose RouteSavvy is its speed,” he adds. “Once we plug in the suitcase owners’ addresses, RouteSavvy optimizes the route in milliseconds.”
