Snow route optimization


State, County, and City governments, Roadway maintenance contractors.

When it comes to money, I think we all agree that having more of it is a good thing.

The economy, while improving continues to affect government. Shrinking budgets and workforce reductions make it tough to do your jobs. The retiring baby boomers trend will peak this decade, adding to the uncertainty of sustaining operations. If you could bottle your senior staff’s experience as a tonic for young recruits, would you do it now? Should you do it now?

Spatial Matters offers solutions to meeting the challenge using current and evolving technologies. In cab navigation using GPS and pre loaded routes guide a driver through their assigned route. Route hazards and special instructions are delivered through map notes.

If you have a need to re design your routes for optimized performance, we offer computer based route design, a method being studied and implemented by state DOTs and local governments this year. The computer model simulates physical and operational constraints, including:

  • Multiple service level classes
  • Deadhead speed
  • Service speed (treating)
  • Salt/Sand/Brine application rate
  • Vehicle capacity
  • Gang plow, Multiple lane, and single lane treatment
  • Start-up costs
  • Cost per unit of time
  • Cost per unit of distance
  • Cost per unit of overtime
  • Ability to benchmark optimized routes against the 'current' plan

Early figures from this season indicate a cost savings between 15-25% using this process.
