Let's summarize the results of 2023

Before the new year, we always remember what achievements and events happened to us. This is the traditional time for taking stock and writing plans for the future. We suggest you remember what updates were made in the ANT-Logistics service in 2023. As we promised, the speed of calculations has increased significantly . Now routing for 2500-2600 points is done in 18 minutes. The second important update is a change in UX/UI design . We changed the top panel, highlighted separate Configuration and Settings menus. Delivery control - this functionality has already been appreciated by many of our users. This year, we expanded it: we added the rule of maximum speed, control of task execution, priority of rules. Another useful feature - now you can set a break in the service for cars . We released A Р I 2.0 . The new A Р I is more convenient and flexible than the previous version. It also has a new UI interface for testing. Thanks to this, the process of integrating ANT-Logistics with ot

Thermal map - objective situation on the roads

Image
Unfortunately, there is no general database where you can monitor the state of roads. Therefore, logisticians do not always manage to respond to changes in the road situation in a timely manner, which means to promptly close and open roads in the service (or OSM map)  and to correctly build traffic routes. How can a logistician find out whether traffic has resumed in a certain area?  ANT-Logistics has added a new feature that allows you to display the actual traffic on the roads. For this, a thermal map is used, on which the intensity of traffic is displayed in a gradation from green to red. If there is no movement, marks will also be absent in these areas. Information is displayed based on data from GPS trackers for the last 5 days. Let's give an example - during the war, a bridge was destroyed in the village of Borshchiv, Kyiv region. Thus, vehicles had to make a big hook while driving from Kyiv to Poltava. This hook is clearly visible on the thermal map. Therefore, the logistici

Business growth and an increase of orders requires more and more resources. In this case, companies cannot always independently ensure the timely delivery of orders - there are not enough vehicles, employees, etc. It is at the moment when it is time to seek help from third-party services and use a hired vehicle. But in the current conditions of the economic crisis, this decision is not always lucrative, since the payment of rented vehicles often "eats up" the additional profit that was obtained due to increased sales. Companies in search of a way out of the above-mentioned situation realized that the optimal solution is to cooperate with other businesses for mutual assistance and saving resources. They wrote to the developers of ANT-Logistics with an initiative to create a platform for users of ANT-Logistics, which allows you to offer your transport or, on the contrary, hire free vehicles offered.  What are the possible advantages of using this platform? Verified users. With
