Client: Essex Equipment Services

South East's Equipment Service Provider

The Essex Equipment Service provides a wide variety of services to the people of Essex working in partnership with five Primary Care Trusts and three district councils, in addition to the Essex Occupational Therapy Service and Fostercare Service.

They operate as an integrated provider within the meaning of the 1999 Health Act flexibilities. They have service level agreements with all partners, which specify precise service requirements and performance standards.

Essex Equipment Services have undertaken a 3 month pilot of DPS LogiX routing software for its driver fitter team.

Our Experience so far:

The anticipated outcome of the pilot was that savings would be made by increasing the productive time spent delivering and installing

equipment for service users rather than each driver route planning on an individual basis.

It was anticipated that efficiencies would also be made in fuel consumption per delivery as well as in having less vehicles on the road, so lowering the carbon footprint of Essex Equipment Service.

Waste Per Sequote

During our recent peak season we didn't have to hire any additional vehicles to cope with the increased loads, an indication of proper route engineering. Our return on investment has been an overwhelming 700% over a very short period. Most other software packages would only provide us with scheduling functionality whereas the solution provided by Route Optimiser addressed our particular needs.
(National Sales Productivity Manager)


This innovative product and its ease of use and its ease of integration into our vehicle tracking and order monitoring system has given us a huge advantage in intelligent planning and optimisation of our fleet. We can quickly quote for a new client by adding that prospective client’s data on top of our existing client’s data to know accurately if we need to add any additional vehicles at any BDA Service Points in order to ensure our pre 08:00 service level is maintained for all clients. ( Mark Dadley - Chairman )


By concentrating on the service market, Axfood Närlivs combines local customer focus with efficient logistics. The implementation has taken some time but has still gone very well and we have managed to find routines for an operative daily route planning. The results that we've accomplished so far speak for themselves having a much better overview over the total volumes of transport. We have also had a better control of our routes and we have managed to reduce our transport costs.
(Daniel Johansson, Head of Transport)
