AMCS Route Optimization Service

For optimization of master routes on consultancy basis

AMCS Route Optimisation Service

In addition to our traditional on-premise solutions, we now offer a Route Optimization Service which entails that we manage the optimization of master routes for our customers, using our state-of-the-art AMCS Route Planner software.

Manually planning master routes is a very time-consuming and complex activity. Consequently, re-planning of routes does not happen as often as it should and, therefore, the routes are not as efficient as they could be. If you would like to achieve the efficiency benefits by optimizing your routes, but you currently do not have available resources, we can help you. We have a highly experienced team of optimization consultants that are ready to optimize your data.

Utilizing the AMCS Route Optimization Service means that your company does not have to implement optimization software or train and use internal resources on master route planning.

Recent examples of efficiency improvements from our customers include:

  • SITA Belgium: 5-10% increase in bins emptied per hour
  • Ragn-Sells Sweden: 10% reduction in number of routes
  • AES Ireland: 15% reduction in cost per lift

The core service provides 1 full master plan optimization per year and 2 full master plan optimizations per year for commercial routes.  The optimization is delivered on a fixed, 3 year service contract based on an annual service fee. This provides you with full control of the cost associated with the service.

AMCS can also deliver ongoing maintenance of the master plan, where customers are removed or inserted into the optimized master plan. This service can either be done under a separately agreed fixed service price or based on time & material.
