Milk Collection Optimisation Software

Dairy processors and hauliers face many challenges when it comes to milk collection, extending far beyond choosing the shortest route.  There are many factors other than distance which must be considered.

Milk production depends on a number of elements including calving, weather and diseases. Milk requirements at processing factories can vary.  Dairy farms can have different access restrictions and bulk tank storage capacity, which influence the types of milk trucks that they are able to accept. Milk trucks have different capacities for milk transportation.

Agreed collection and offloading times at farms and factories must be considered, as well as delays in production or indeed traffic congestion which may result in late arrivals and customer dissatisfaction.

Many, if not all, of these concerns can be eliminated or controlled with accurate route optimisation planning.  OptaHaul gives you the power to proactively manage your milk transport so that you can reduce costs, increase efficiency and decrease carbon emissions.
