Fewer miles. Lower carbon footprint. Less cost

Fewer wasted miles travelled

Optimised multi-drop sequences mean unnecessary delivery miles travelled by your drivers are reduced, which directly results in less fuel consumed, costs reduced, and lower emissions released.
Reduce delivery costs

Drive down your delivery costs

Reduced admin, more efficient routes, and fewer wasted miles travelled help you drive down your overall delivery costs.

How it works

Your road to efficient routes & carbon zero

Make use of Stream’s optimisation features to get on the road to planning more efficient routes.

Create your runs
Build your runs individually, or create them in bulk, then add your orders using drag & drop, select & load, or the map drawing tool.
Optimise your routes
Single-click route optimisation creates the most efficient routes. Make adjustments and re-optimise as often as you need.
Send routes to drivers
Once you're happy with your routes, simply hit the close button on a run to have it automatically sent to the assigned driver’s app.

Frequently Asked Questions

Route optimisation software helps logistics managers to plan the most efficient run for their drivers. Route optimisation software takes all stops into account to plan the fastest and most fuel-efficient route.

Optimising your delivery routes in Stream is as simple as loading all of the stops onto your run and then clicking the ‘Optimise’ button. This will then plot the stops into the most efficient sequence, helping you reduce your driver’s total mileage and time spent out on the road.

Yes! Driver breaks can be added manually to a run in Stream, alternatively, you can set up automatic driver breaks, which will create a new break on the run after each specified time duration has passed and will last for a duration that you can specify.

Yes! It is possible to optimise routes in Stream for runs that span multiple days. You can make use of the Driver Breaks feature to plan overnight stops for drivers within the run, with deliveries and collections then pushed to resume the following day.

Route optimisation plays a key role in decarbonisation, and helping businesses cut their fleet’s carbon emissions by finding the most efficient route between delivery and collection stops, minimising the distance a vehicle has to travel and therefore the amount of fuel consumed.

The UK Government has urged businesses to take action to reduce emissions to contribute to the UK-wide net zero by 2050 target, and by adopting carbon reduction policies businesses can play their part in helping to achieve it. Carbon reduction policies show a duty of responsibility to tackling air pollution, carbon emissions, and global warming, and the wider impact they have on the environment and society.

Plan less, deliver more.

Slash your route planning time, cut your delivery costs and exceed your customer’s expectations.
