Case Study – City of Baltimore, MD

City has achieved new collection efficiencies and cost savings of approximately $6 million annually with alternative optimized routes using FleetRoute™.

The Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority selected GBB to help re-route the City of Baltimore’s residential trash collection system, which used 100 trucks to service 233,000 households.

  • GBB teamed with C2Logix and used the FleetRoute™ route optimization software in a service bureau project.
  • GBB refined on GIS maps the geocoding of the City’s customers (including those serviced in alleys).
  • The GBB project team developed five alternative route scenarios that optimized the routes, workdays and equipment allocation, each with associated cost savings.
