GeoRoute software provides powerful optimization tools which suggest the number of routes needed to serve a given area. A fully interactive feature allows graphically viewing and editing routes proposed by the software, or creating new ones. GeoRoute is the most widely used software in the postal sector.
“bpost has been working with GIRO for over 10 years,” says Philippe Dubois, Process and Transformation Director at bpost. “The GeoRoute tool provides real support for distribution route optimization and mail collection in Belgium.”
“We are delighted to work with bpost,” adds Serge Galarneau, GIRO’s Routing Director. “This long-standing customer has always used our software to its full capacity and the new mandate reflects their confidence in GeoRoute’s ability to help them achieve their business goals.”
With sales of 2.364 million euros in 2011, bpost is the number one operator in Belgium.
