Symbion Health has chosen Transtech to provide route optimisation software and consulting support to model Symbion’s national distribution network.
Symbion Health is a wholesaler and distributor of pharmacy services to local pharmacies. They have to manage both inbound and outbound logistics from their delivery centres.
The outbound logistics requires dynamic vehicle routing that meets hard time windows. End of month and special promotions increase the dynamic nature of route optimisation.
Not every pharmacy makes an order every day, but when the order is placed, the expectation is that it will be delivered within a tight time window.
An order lodged before the evening cut off time is expected to be delivered the next morning. One placed after 1 pm is expected by the end of the business day.
When the National Distribution and Network Optimisation Manager looked for the most suitable software and support to help him model a new national network, he chose Direct Route and support by Transtech logistics consultants.
This solution was chosen because of the functionality and timely supply of Direct Route and the consulting expertise provided by Transtech. Price was also a consideration.
Direct Route is excellent when used either for modelling a network or driving a distribution operation at lowest cost. For your own modelling or operational needs, contact Transtech.
