How it works

How it works

Veeroute is a SaaS optimization engine. Hosted in the cloud and available through the Internet, it has the following major components:
Mathematical core

The core automatically analyzes input data, identifies the best set of algorithms to apply and provides rapid, high-quality solutions.

Problems-specific API

The application programming interface (API) allows to define the problem in business terms such as fleet size, time windows or the work a driver must perform at a given location. Veeroute will analyze your problem and determine the best way to solve it.

Veeroute environment:
VRt Analytics

Web-based user interface allows you to define a problem, solve it and analyze the results. Just as important, you can use VRT Analytics to test your ideas for addressing pressing business issues such as improving services, estimating savings and service levels and analyzing risk

"How-to" examples

These examples allow you to test an integration with the solver. Our documentation includes examples which you can copy and use to better understand how the optimizer works.

There are three ways to work with the Veeroute optimization engine:

  • Use third-party software such as transportation management, client relationship management and supply chain management systems that you’ve integrated with the solver. Here, Veeroute is transparent: you work directly with your system.
  • Use the Veeroute environment to work with the optimization engine. For example, you could upload a dataset you stored in a Microsoft Excel workbook. You could also use VRT Analytics to create the dataset and to work with the solver.
  • Use tools such as Postman or Insomnia to work with the Veeroute API. If you’re a developer who is performing integration activities or you simply want to drill down into the detail, this may be an ideal option. Our documentation includes more information to help guide you.

The communication with Veeroute uses JSONs that meet OpenAPI standards.

Simply put, this allows you to describe your problem in business terms such as your fleet’s size, your time windows, shifts or maintenance requirements. Veeroute’s focus on business problems also simplifies your interactions with the solver: you define or generate JSON, send it to the optimization server and view your results.

You can use VRT Analytics software or API development tools to test the engine and calculate the savings it would offer your business. Our documentation includes examples that describe how to use our API; you can copy the JSONs and paste them into popular tools such as Postman or Insomnia to see how the engine works.
