What is ElasticRoute?
"ElasticRoute is a heuristic based route planning and optimization algorithm that solves the vehicle routing problem for large fleets with high speed."
A product of Detrack Systems, ElasticRoute was officially launched in March 2019.
ElasticRoute is a heuristic based route planning and optimization algorithm that solves the vehicle routing problem for all fleets regardless of size, with the edge of speed, scalability and the capability to produce natural cluster-based routes.
From field services, to construction, to waste & recycling management. From postal services to food & beverage delivery, to a wide range of logistics services. We help businesses all over the world produce the most optimized routes for their operational needs.
What is ElasticRoute’s edge?
For decades, scientists have turned to using heuristic algorithms to make route planning even possible for practical use i.e. complete planning in time for dispatch, albeit with varying degrees of success. The truth is, solving the challenge of route planning is really about tackling scale. Good algorithms should be able to produce plans fast, no matter if the fleet is big or small.
Unfortunately, even with the use of heuristics, most algorithms struggle to scale as the time required to complete planning tend to grow exponentially with the number of stops required to be routed in a single plan.
This is where ElasticRoute comes in.
We’ve invented Elgo, a heuristic algorithm that is able to reduce the polynomial time required to plan routes into linear time i.e. one that doesn’t grow exponentially with the number of stops. And not just that, it’s impossibly fast.
Here’s what we are talking about: 1,000 stops in 90 seconds. 6,000 stops in under 10 minutes.
And we are only getting started.
Our goal is to make route planning Fast, Scalable, and Affordable so that dispatchers around the world will no longer need to bear the pain of manual route planning for another day, ever again.
