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.

ElasticRoute Product Details

ElasticRoute uses its own proprietary heuristic based algorithm to solve the vehicle routing problem (VRP) efficiently and at an unsurpassed speed, enabling businesses worldwide to benefit from fast and efficient automated route planning and optimization.

Taking a mere 90 seconds to plan 1,000 stops, the routes produced are also cluster-based instead of ones produced by more common radial or greedy route planning algorithm. Cluster-based routes have the advantage of being “natural”, mimicking how a human will plan.

ElasticRoute saves time as it requires little or no manual adjustments of the planned routes, leveraging on drivers’ locale familiarity, while paving the way for a seamless customer experience that can only come from drivers actually following the routes planned for them.

With ElasticRoute, businesses worldwide (even those with massive fleets) are now equipped with the agility to deal with challenges like unplanned changes, or last-minute additions to their delivery plans that are commonplace in field service or logistics operations.

ElasticRoute also caters to a wide range of factors during the route planning process, like time windows, multiple depots, rush hour traffic buffers, load, zones, maximum stops per route planned, service time, loading time, driver working hours and more.

Besides creating job sequence numbers for every run displayed on the map, ElasticRoute is also able to generate the estimated time of arrival (ETA) for all stops as well.

An open API that’s readily available to the public also allows ElasticRoute to be seamlessly integrated with other solutions. Businesses are able to conveniently use the route planning solution together with existing workflows and systems, eliminating the need to work on separate solutions.
