The latest version of the “Stream Go” logistics & transport management software now takes electric vehicles’ range limits into account when planning and optimising delivery and collection routes.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today, the software developer Stream said that this should help ensure that sustainable vehicles can complete scheduled deliveries and collections without running out of charge on the road.
Dave Pickburn, Director at Stream, said: “Stream has had a focus from the start on optimising routes to reduce mileage and minimise the fuel used for deliveries. It was a logical step to introduce functionality into Stream Go to enable organisations with electric as well as conventional vehicles in their fleets to plan and optimise delivery and collection routes effectively and efficiently.
“We want to support businesses taking advantage of the financial, environmental and social responsibility benefits of introducing electric vehicles into their commercial fleets.”
