An initial phase was first carried out using three scheduling models for a fleet of 150 busses, achieving a 7% cost savings. All schedules comply with the company's own business, operational and labor-related regulations, and are tailored according to a variety of specific factors involved. Following upon this initial success, the company has begun to apply the system to its entire fleet of more than 1,200 buses.
In the words of Edmundo Reyes, Logistics Manager and project leader for Grupo SENDA, "GOALBUS applies a working methodology that lets companies be certain about the amounts of resources needed during operations to efficiently satisfy their own needs and those of the customers".
Based in Monterrey, Grupo SENDA's nationwide passenger transit services cover an area that includes 15 of Mexico's states, as well as making connections with major U.S. cities in Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee.
Grupo SENDA is the company that other Mexican interurban transit companies recognize as a leader in technology, innovation and service, and Grupo SENDA continues to modernize its operations using our tools. It is now applying this process for its other nationwide transit companies, TAMAULIPAS, COAHULIENSES and TURIMES. We are working in close collaboration with Grupo SENDA to help achieve their objectives in the shortest amount of time possible, and with maximum cost savings.
Another important branch of Grupo SENDA's business is the chartered transit services provided for businesses, schools and universities, with 1,000 buses dedicated to these. GOAL SYSTEMS is also collaborating with Grupo SENDA to obtain maximum optimization for services of this type, where excellent results are already being seen in the tests now being conducted.
The optimization results and implementation times are the most efficient in the market. In Mexico, companies including Grupo ADO, Grupo Senda, Macrobus S.A de C.V, Transpaís and Conejubus already rely upon GOAL SYSTEMS software to achieve efficient resource planning.
