The Most Powerful Logistics Software in the UK
Established in 1979 with almost 40 years experience in the development and installation
of planning software, our reputation as provider of the UK's most
flexible logistics package is backed up by market leading companies
from a diverse range of industries.
"Easy-to-Use" off-the-shelf software that can be used for Daily Scheduling, Strategic Fleet Planning,
Trunking, Supply Chain Analysis & Workforces and also customised if necessary to suit individual business requirements.
Using standard data interfaces the package can be up and running within days.
This module provides the means to
model the entire distribution operation of a company at the
finest level of detail, minimising travelling time and
maximising vehicle utilisation.
Our intuitive "Drag and Drop" interface allows you to easily
modify routes as you want.
Over 35 years of working
closely with customers on this module has led to many
enhancements to make this a most powerful tool for any
Supply Chain Analysis
This module can be given a depot supply-chain network and
utilizes it using sophisticated algorithms to minimise
operating costs for a span of several days or even months.
The allocation of accounts is fully
integrated with the DiPS Strategic Route Planning System to
allow immediate scheduling.
This flexible and easy to use tool can help your business
cut its costs from day one
"DiPS powerful yet flexible software can be
tailored to your individual needs"
Complete depot structures may be modelled to reflect
different product "paths" from origin to destination. Any
combination of factory, depot, transhipment point,
satellite depot etc. can be represented. It is possible to
define a comprehensive set of cost parameters to cover all
aspects of an operation
DiPS also features the ability to determine the optimal
location to place a centralised depot to help your business
decide where it is best situated.
Daily Route Planning
The Daily Planning module takes sales
orders and optimises delivery schedules utilising the depot network and vehicles available. An
interface between DiPS and mainframe computers to transfer order and
route information is available as a standard feature of the package.
We tailor interface programs specifically for your needs
as part of our standard installation. We have already
developed links for packages such as
SAP, JBA, JDE, OPUS, and many other bespoke SOP and Warehouse
"DiPS goes above and beyond a simple logistics
Shipment data can also be employed to account for movement
of produce from one location to another, for example
back-loading from supplier to a factory location, as part of
a distribution operation. This is employed to plan trunking
operations and can even be extended to include "via" points,
where loads are staged for onward movement by another
Trunking networks allow you to more closely model real
life and find ways to optimise distribution across the
This module is designed to produce one day’s routes from
a given file of jobs. The program is able to make multiple
passes through the data to solve all of the constraints that
have been placed on the solution.
Using a sophisticated set of algorithms, this module can
handle many permutations of skills, meetings, times,
locations and many other parameters.
This module is a fine demonstration of how DiPS is
capable of going above and beyond vehicle routing
"DiPS work with you every step of the way, offering a
professional yet personal service to every customer"
DiPS can be easily interfaced with any satellite tracking
program allowing you to take full advantage of this
technology and further optimise routes through real-time
visibility of your fleet and comparing actual vs planned
DiPS is already being used with Microlise and Isotrak
systems and can be modified to work with any others through
our bespoke interfaces.
DiPS is equipped with a powerful array of importing,
exporting and reporting tools. All DiPS data can be easily
exported out in a variety of formats ready to be integrated
with a variety of other technologies including warehouse management systems.
Manage Fixed Routes
DiPS can be easily set-up with intelligent fixed routing

After working closely with market leaders in the brewing
industry, DiPS is now able to offer a variety of options,
from traditional fixed routes downloaded with orders or
maintained in the database, to continually updated schedules
based on last weeks routes, and even zonal scheduling based
upon customer postcode.
DiPS fixed routes allow you to be even more efficient
with your daily planning, saving time and money.
