One of the major problems with any parcel delivery system is how to get the parcel from A to B in the shortest time and the shortest distance. However the route must get broken down into several distinct parts. Firstly collection, which requires small van collection from addresses all over the local area. And the problem is how to get the parcels into the van in the shortest distance travelled or the shortest time or even more acceptably to get them into them in the shortest distance and the shortest time. The next part of the route takes the parcel from a local warehouse to a staging post in another part of the country and then to another local warehouse for final distribution in the reverse manner to the collection system.
Each of these stages requires very careful planning and there are some excellent software administration systems, which have been developed to help the couriers develop a good nation-wide or worldwide transport system.
Recently there have been some more recent developments of the system using improved computer programmes, which will receive all the parcels delivery details and then plot the best course to follow. Once the route has been plotted then the route can be downloaded into the cab of the lorry and the driver has to follow the instructions as he is given them by the tachometer or route planner fitted into the cab. A good carrier will have a good planning system for collection and the best systems are often supplied by some of the cheapest hauliers because of the savings possible by using a good planning system. A good worldwide carrier will be able to cut fuel costs because of the lower mileage travelled and result in shorter times that the journeys take allowing greater operator usage and lower planning costs. The carrier can save significant costs but can also have a quicker and more efficient delivery service.
