Automated Route Planning Software 

Descartes’ route planning software will assess orders as they are received, then using the known resources and capacity available for deliveries, calculate a selection of optimal delivery slots. 

These delivery slots can then be offered to the consumer at POS for them to select their own preferred delivery date and time or used automatically to plan in the most optimal slot for delivery.
