Dispatch planning, also known as delivery planning or routing optimization, is the process of efficiently scheduling and coordinating the delivery of goods or services to customers or destinations. It involves determining the most optimal routes, assigning appropriate vehicles or carriers, and scheduling delivery times to meet customer demands while minimizing costs and maximizing service levels.

The main aim is to optimize vehicle utilization by analyzing the current vehicle picklist, identifying touchpoints for route generation, and allocating vehicles strategically to maximize efficiency and minimize empty miles.

Dispatch planning ensures efficient and cost-effective delivery operations by optimizing vehicle routes, maximizing utilization, meeting customer deadlines, and providing real-time monitoring to respond effectively to changes.
