Giro will showcase its latest GeoRoute routing software to help postal operators in their planning and optimization process for the last mile – from strategic, long-term planning, to dynamic adjustments on the day of operations.
Postal organizations are facing an increasingly challenging landscape. Customer expectations are rising; mail and parcel volumes are fluctuating; and competition is growing. How can posts respond to these market shifts and still maintain efficiency on the last mile? The answer lies in being flexible enough to manage volume and product fluctuations dynamically, while providing the stability needed to ensure efficient operations.
Giro’s GeoRoute software facilitates balancing routes, implementing new organizational models and redesigning delivery/pick-up networks. GeoRoute’s daily workload dashboard for depot managers enables them to identify possible operational problems in advance, or to adjust solutions dynamically when problems arise, while respecting operational constraints. GeoRoute is used around the world by some of the best- performing postal operators, including bpost, Canada Post, Deutsche Post DHL, La Poste, Royal Mail and Swiss Post.
Giro now counts on a team of more than 500 experts, including a specialized, dedicated algorithm team. With its long-established commitment to R&D to spur innovation and meet the emerging challenges in the postal industry as they arise, Giro continuously devotes 30% of its resources to R&D and collaborates with clients to take products in new directions.
