Melbourne, Australia – Bestrane uses Rapid Planning Methodology (RPM) to quickly plan newspaper deliveries in New Zealand for Express Couriers. Express Couriers in New Zealand required a way of planning the delivery of news papers to 18,000 subscribers in metropolian areas of New Zealand in order to engage with delivery contractors. And they needed these plans within 5 days.
Using RouteSmart’s dense routing application, Bestrane took the subscriber delivery locations, and generated detailed delivery plans which contractors were able to determine delivery costs. In the 4 day period, 5 delivery scenarios were generated, refining to the final plan which was presented to contractors.
Jamie Till, Technical Business Analyst, led the effort from Express Couriers, and had this to say at the completion of the project… “Bestrane was able to generate details routes for newspaper home delivery using the RouteSmart application within a very tight timeframe.”, concluding that “The result was first class”.
These results will be used to help transform the newspaper home delivery operation to a professional delivery model.
