The new CAST Routing solution, powered by Route Optimiser from DPS, reduces modelling time and provides dynamic routing functionality.

Using the Route Optimiser Web API, Barloworld, have been able to bring together strategic Network design and Dynamic tactical routing using a single dataset, the new CAST Routing solution works seamlessly in a single platform.



Using the new CAST Routing tool, organisations will have the capability to size and profile the optimal fleet mix, allocate demand to network and vehicle mode considering end-to-end costs and capacities and validate strategic networks with real-world data on operational transport and delivery time. As a recent industry trial highlighted, the new tool has also proven to significantly speed up the time required to carry out strategic and tactical solution design

“Typically, 3PLs and other companies running multi-drop delivery operations invest in multiple technologies,” said Fraser Ironside, Head of Strategic Modelling “Drawing on a single set of data, this new tool combines the strategic cost decision element of CAST with DPS International’s tactical Route Optimiser routing and scheduling tool, giving users a single, effective integrated transport planning platform.”

DPS International have been an industry leader in both Desktop and Cloud based dynamic routing and scheduling for some time. This collaboration, making DPS technology the “optimising engine” within the CAST Routing platform is an important commercial project for DPS proving the simplicity and advantages of integrating Route Optimiser into specialist and niche products.

“Barloworld Supply Chain Software’s proven industry solutions support a wide range of international businesses with their strategic design and tactical decisions,” said Paul Palmer, CEO and founder of DPS International. “Now, its innovative CAST platform is fully-equipped with the full functionality of our award-winning logistics and Route Optimisation Software, giving users a complete solution in a single software platform.”

This combined solution providing both Strategic and Tactical/Dynamic scheduling will mean that designing a Supply Chain will no longer require multiple products and with Route Optimiser being cloud based makes it potentially appeal to a wider range of businesses.
