Client: Savona

Supplier of High Quality Wholesale Products

The Project:

In these challenging times of economic downturn everyone involved in distribution needs to look at the delivery of both products and services at a cost effective price. Savona needed to ensure that they were delivering the best value to their customers and by using the delivery fleet the most efficient way possible.

To do this the management team at Savona engaged DPS International and the Route Optimiser Suite.

What Our Customers Say


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)


To ensure that we continued to improve our service offering in line with our product quality,we needed to get smarter with our transport. We decided that the Route Optimiser product was the best system for us, delivering ease of use, speed of operation, operational efficiencies and overall visibility. Looking to the medium term we are investing further in the TomTom Work system for vehicle tracking, navigation and gaining the ability to pass the jobs directly from the LogiX Suite to the operatives in their vehicles.

Essex Insulationquote

When we first started we were able to use manual route and work scheduling, but now we are fitting 200 sites per week and it is simply not feasible to produce efficient plans manually. One of the big challenges is that the addresses are new each time-it is not like a logistics business where deliveries are to the same addresses every day or week” With RO we can now produce robust schedules and manage customers expectations regarding time and service. We simply could not do this job without Route Optimiser.

Route Optimiser is a fully versatile and effective transport planning tool that has assisted us in supporting our clients in many varied and complex scenarios.

Davies & Robsonquote

To us, it was very important that the system was able to describe different types of goods flow from various types of terminals in an easy way. With the Plan LogiX tramping algorithm, the flow of goods was described very exactly. It also felt secure to be able to buy a standard system that would fulfil the planning needs we have.
