The Bestrane Group, an Australian-based provider of ‘best of breed’ logistics solutions, announced today that it has been appointed as a distributor for RouteSmart Technologies to compliment its suite of planning and execution tools and solutions.

Through its exposure to the logistics industry in Australia and New Zealand, Bestrane identified a lack of proven, cost effective and ‘fit for purpose’ solutions available in the Australian Market to address the “high density” routing problem. This routing problem is found where there are a large number of addresses to be serviced within a territory and is highly relevant to specific industries. “The Bestrane Group identified RouteSmart Technologies as a best in class provider of solutions for the dense routing problem. RouteSmart software has been proven in many sites around the world to address the high density routing problem that is commonly faced when developing optimal routes for operations such as; Garbage Collection, Street Sweeping, Utility Inspections and Home Delivery of Newspapers” said David Sanders, Managing Director of Bestrane Group.

These types of Routing problems typically have a large number of unique characteristics that these specific operating environments must account for in order to generate “optimal” workload balancing. Identifying the optimal result requires a unique routing algorithm and solution architecture which RouteSmart Technologies has developed and deployed in across many sites over many years.

“RouteSmart Technologies is very keen to establish a presence for local representation and support within the Australian and New Zealand marketplaces and is pleased to be partnering with Bestrane to do so”, comments Chris Walz, Vice President of RouteSmart Technologies. “We’ve had a fair degree of activity and interest in the marketplace and we are confident with the local representation by Bestrane we can grow our foot-print there to provide the RouteSmart solution offering to clients in our core industries”, concludes Walz.

“The Bestrane Group is proud to work with RouteSmart to deliver this value-add solution to the Australasian market” said David Sanders, Managing Director of Bestrane Group. “Our relationship with RouteSmart forms a key plank in our strategy to continue to provide best in class, logistics solutions to the Australian & New Zealand Marketplaces”
