The Spring Hope Food Drive is an annual event that helps ramp up food bank donations during the summer months in Vancouver, Canada. Volunteers fan out to nearly 200 apartment buildings to collect more than 20,000 pounds of food.

Business Challenges

As organizer Landon Goold began preparing for the food drive, he realized he had a major logistics problem on his hands. He had already spent 4 hours manually planning routes for his drivers, calculating a need for 30 vehicles that would spend a total of 15.5 hours on the road. “There has to be a better, more efficient way,” Landon thought.

Solution

Landon went online and found Routific’s route optimization solution. It took just three minutes for our Routing Engine to optimize Landon’s routes. We also calculated a need for just 22 cars and 9.7 hours on the road – a 37% savings in fuel costs.

I could have thrown 20 hours into planning routes manually and they still would not be as efficient as what Routific was able to create for me in minutes.
