Dynamic Directed Fueling Optimization™

Dynamic directed fueling optimization is a unique capability of the Route4Me platform.

This feature directs your vehicle to the closest and cheapest location to replenish fuel, salt, heating oil, compressed gas, or any other resource you need. It’s the first commercially available routing module of its kind.


 

As your route progresses, it has less of the “stuff” that you’re delivering and to avoid going all the way back to home base for a refill, Route4Me can send your vehicle to the best location to get a refill.

For instance, in the case of heating oil delivery, consider that a truck can only fit a maximum amount of heating oil in its storage tanks. In areas where the customers are located very closely together, the truck might run out of oil within hours of beginning its route.

However, using our Dynamic Directed Fueling Optimization™ feature, Route4Me can find the closest pre-approved refueling facility, and route your vehicle to refill its tanks as close to the next customer as possible. This way, the vehicle travels with an empty tank for the longest period of time possible, so that you increase miles-per-gallon because your vehicle weighs less.
