Dallas, TX, April 25, 2023 — Roadrunner, a service-first less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, has selected Optym’s RouteMax to optimize pickup & delivery operations and improve customer satisfaction. RouteMax provides end-to-end optimization of pickup & delivery operations, improving efficiency and cutting costs with advanced route optimization, intelligent dispatching, and a smart driver mobile app. These tools will empower Roadrunner planners, dispatchers, and drivers with best-in-class augmented intelligence.
“We’ve invested heavily in technology to enhance our network and reduce transit times to become the best LTL carrier in the business,” Roadrunner Head of Operations Tomasz Jamroz said. “As we redesigned our network, we looked at optimizing our delivery and pickup operations while empowering our employees with new tools. Optym leads the industry in trucking enhancements, and we’re proud to partner with them to improve our service. This collaboration is driven by a shared passion for innovation. With RouteMax, we’ll be able to improve inbound planning, customer satisfaction, and terminal performance while enhancing our Smart Long Haul Network.”
RouteMax provides LTL carriers with a single system for planning, managing, monitoring, and reporting on deliveries and pick-ups:
- Route optimization creates routes that meet all operational constraints while reducing the number of trips needed and miles driven.
- Intelligent dispatching saves precious time through a data-driven approach to rapidly assign single or multiple pick-ups to the best drivers considering all operating constraints.
- Smart driver app improves driver satisfaction with intuitive workflows and minimal data entry. Dynamic optimization of stops makes drivers more efficient.
“We’re honored that Roadrunner has chosen us to be their partner in improving the efficiency of their operations,” Optym Director of Routing Solutions Rambabu Yadlapalli said. “Our team will ensure that Roadrunner receives the best possible service and support as they integrate RouteMax into their systems.”
Implementation began in March at Roadrunner’s Dallas terminal, with plans for a full rollout across Roadrunner’s 30+ terminals and 1,000+ drivers expected later this year.
