Visit every address
Route Planning and optimization for mail delivery routes, newspapers and Total Market Coverage (TMC) with printed advertisement materials differs in several ways from last mile routing for parcel distribution. A postal service needs to visit every address in area that in fact could be an entire country, so this specialty within route planning must be able to handle large numbers of locations. Many carriers delivering mail, newspapers and commercial folders are walking or riding a bicycle while others will need to use a car. These multi modal requirements should also handled by the route planning software.
Rapidis offers an edition of the Logistics Planner software that handles the above scenarios where you need to visit every address in a large area.
This type of route planning could also be used for Meter Reading.
