This is an important goal for all fleet operators, but in situations where every stop is time critical, it can be difficult to accomplish. A.MAZE Planning was specifically designed for this type of environment. We’re pleased that CDC Systems recognizes our ability to address challenges unique to the armored car industry.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 25, 2006
GEOCOMtms, a global provider of Fleet Management solutions for local pickup and delivery operations, announced today that CDC Systems, Inc., a privately held armored transportation provider, has selected A.MAZE Planning™, an advanced dispatch planning tool, to optimize daily routing and scheduling.
CDC Systems is one of the Northeast’s leading providers of armored transportation. Founded in 1959 as a coin storage and processing center, the company provides a wide range of services, including secure logistics, currency replenishment, and deposit processing. CDC currently operates over 200 vehicles and serves customers in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania from four regional facilities.
“At CDC Systems, we pride ourselves on the reliability, dependability, and integrity of service we deliver to our customers,” said Vince Modarelli, president and chief executive officer of CDC Systems, Inc. “They depend on us to provide the coin and currency they need for day-to-day operations. That means most of our stops are time critical. So daily route plans have to meet strict time windows or they just won’t work. At the same time, we have to operate efficiently and carefully manage transportation costs. We selected A.MAZE Planning because it was the only tool designed for the way our business works, and because it produced the best results of all the software we evaluated.”
A.MAZE Planning, a fully integrated component of GEOCOMtms’ A.MAZE Fleet Management solution, automates the task of building loads, sequencing and scheduling stops, and designing routes. Specifically developed for time-sensitive pickup and delivery environments, A.MAZE incorporates sophisticated optimization technology, making it possible to process and analyze a virtually limitless number of order / sequence / timing / vehicle / routing combinations. The result is highly efficient plans that meet all customer service requirements.
The A.MAZE Planning routing and scheduling solution delivers several advantages:
- Accelerates the planning cycle
- Reduces transportation costs and driver overtime
- Works in static, daily, and real-time planning environments
- Obeys time windows and other customer service commitments
- Supports multiple vehicle types and configurations
- Recognizes vehicle capacity constraints
- Creates “doable” routes that drivers will follow
- Allows “what if analysis” for creating profitable bids
“GEOCOMtms is focused on helping our customers reduce transportation costs without impacting the quality of service they provide,” said Michael Nark, president and chief executive officer of GEOCOMtms. “This is an important goal for all fleet operators, but in situations where every stop is time critical, it can be difficult to accomplish. A.MAZE Planning was specifically designed for this type of environment. We’re pleased that CDC Systems recognizes our ability to address challenges unique to the armored car industry.”
