“Synchronize route planning with the clients’ work schedules”
The Top Market team talked about the gained benefits and how the day-to-day activity has evolved since the company uses the delivery optimization software from Senior Software.
The TMS solution offered by Senior Software allows you to synchronize route planning with the clients’ work schedules, thus getting an advantage in customer relationships and an efficient communication between the logistics department and the final customer.
In route planning, the solution takes into account the client’s GPS coordinates, the client’s work schedule, the allocated time for loading and unloading goods both at the customer and in the warehouse, the fleet capacity and the tonnage for each individual vehicle, the driving times for Category C drivers, where the legislation requires a specific schedule.
Crew planning is done the night before, so that the next day everyone knows what their activity is for the whole day, the clients, the times and the route. The system allows efficient communication between the route operator and the distribution crews.

“Senior Software’s TMS solution has opened new horizons for us”
Due to the automation and flexibility provided by the TMS software, Top Market efficiently plans and executes delivery processes. With the solution for transport management and deliveries optimization, the distributor currently manages to deliver the goods in a shorter time and with minimum costs.
In terms of savings directly from the transport management system, we gained a 3% reduction of fuel consumption and a 2% increase in loading efficiency, while the conversion of orders-deliveries had an improvement of over 20%. Sure, the percentages seem small, but we have to consider that in a single month, in full season, we do about 90,000 kilometers, which means about twice the Earth’s Equator length. Senior Software’s TMS solution has opened new horizons for us. We made an inspired choice with this system.
