How We Use Descartes System


The Descartes system allows consolidation and swapping of routes. This helps Old Dominion Freight Line improve productivity, determine what staffing is needed, and provide much more detailed routing. This system also allows us to:

  • Determine what freight needs to be worked first
  • Determine in what door to load to maximize reduced transit times
  • Increase P&D efficiency to reduce costs
  • Render maps so that customer deliveries are planned properly
