Swynoo enters new spheres of disposition with the latest features

“Stagnation is regression”

Swynoo has always taken this quote to heart since its founding in 2020. With the latest features, Swynoo is not only entering new spheres, but is also constantly making the daily business of its customers easier. With the integration of artificial intelligence and automatic status changes through geofencing, the efficiency of scheduling can be further optimized and costs can be saved. What exactly these features are will be explained in the next sections.

Support through artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence supports the disposition by displaying suggestions for vehicles or orders. Concretely, it suggests suitable orders based on a wide variety of factors such as the current location of the vehicles, availability, vehicle categories, etc., to achieve an efficiency that a human could only manage with a great deal of time. Conversely, Swynoo’s AI also enables the best possible orders to be displayed based on the vehicles selected. Last but not least, the support of AI can counteract the problem of the number of empty kilometers.

Automatic status change through geofencing

Recently, geofencing has been implemented in Swynoo. Geofencing refers to the automatic triggering of an action by crossing a geolocated boundary. Geofences are thus predefined areas defined by the coordinates of the map location. A coordinate is a point containing two numbers – longitude and latitude. Together, these numbers represent a specific point on a map. Swynoo uses circles with a radius of 200 meters for geofencing. The center of such a circle is called a point of interest in technical terminology. For Swynoo, the POI are, without exception, factories (sites) and construction sites (destinations), which are automatically created as soon as an order for a particular day has been created and the information regarding the site and destination has been stored.

For Swynoo, geofencing enables the automatic status change of the current deliveries. As soon as certain areas (circles) are passed, the status of the deliveries is adjusted. This can be illustrated by the following example:

Let’s assume that it is a transport type “transport incl. material”. Once the driver receives the order, they first drive to a factory (location) to load the ordered material. As soon as the circle is reached from the location (factory), the status automatically changes from “First trip started” to “First trip completed”. After the material is loaded and the vehicle leaves the circle again, the status again changes automatically to “Second trip started”. This transparency gives the dispatchers information at any time about the status of the drivers with regard to the deliveries and possible measures for follow-up orders can be taken more quickly. In addition, all scheduled vehicles are continuously tracked and displayed to the disposition in the map.

Disposition 2.0

The disposition view could be further optimized through geofencing. Disposition 2.0 was implemented as a new module, which enables the daily view of all dispositioned vehicles. Specifically, the disposition is displayed by visual support using bar charts. This makes it possible to see at a glance for all vehicles, down to the minute, in which delivery status (loading/unloading, driving, empty drive, etc.) the vehicles are and when the deliveries are expected to be completed.
