Notes from Kelly from the Implementation to Support Handoff 

-          Using Direct Route and Resource Pro for Driver Bids on routes, these routes become static for the driver for a 6 month  period

-          Reroutes occur to balance routes due to store opening/closures or volume changes

-          Private Fleet – approx. 30 drivers – almost all long haul, with multiple layovers and most have 2 routes in the weekly cycle

-          Driver compensation package based on Stop/Drop count and Store volume size (pieces)

-          1000 plus delivery locations – 90% are direct store delivery – M-F, 0730-1900

-          Replicated their existing routes to establish “Baseline” for configuration and preferences

-          Using Time Zone feature for more accuracy on arrival and departure time ETA’s

-          They currently do Back Hauls with their trucks to pick up product from suppliers

-          Looking to increase BH through an outside bid process (broker type)
