Whether you want to optimize routes for a fleet of 5 trucks or 100, or need routing for high density areas or point-to-point collection, GBB provides software tools that make waste collection and dispatch operations both efficient and cost-effective. These tools eliminate hours spent on manual routing, maximize productivity, optimize equipment and staff allocations, and allow you to gain better control over your operations.


FleetRoute Collection RoutingFleetRoute™ is geographic information system-based modeling software for high density residential routing, point-to-point commercial / special waste routing, and districting / analytics / area routing. It balances route times, service days and districts; optimizes travel paths; and reduces the time and cost associated with updating routes. It also integrates with customer service and billing systems.

Developed and regularly updated by waste industry veterans and leading GIS experts, FleetRoute™ represents nearly two decades’ experience in designing, building and implementing route optimization software for local governments and the waste industry.

FleetRoute™ is flexible and completely customized for your specific requirements. It is available as commercial, off-the-shelf software for in-house route development and management; or as a service by having GBB’s service bureau do all the initial route development; or as a combination of the two: initial route development by GBB and subsequent route management in-house.

How Does FleetRoute™ Provide Better Routes?

This goal is realized by using state-of-the-art feature-based object-oriented programming technology. In plain English this means that everything you deal with on a day-to-day basis, such as your trucks, depots, landfills, transfer stations, and even your customers, are represented by an object in the computer which has appropriate “characteristics” and “behaviors.”

FleetRoute™ models the relationships between these objects and then applies advanced optimization techniques to solve your problems. At each step in this process you can intervene and apply your judgment and restrictions. For instance, if you want Joe’s route located around Maple Street, you simply drag his truck from the depot and drop it on Maple Street and FleetRoute™ automatically takes this request into account as it creates your routes. FleetRoute™ is designed to approach routing the way you would.


Flexibility is key. FleetRoute was created to be highly adaptable. One approach can’t solve every routing problem, so FleetRoute has an adaptable algorithm to provide optimal solutions for all of your routing needs. If a routing technology is not flexible enough to save 100% of your problem, it is not a solution.


Simplification in routing is achieved through automation. FleetRoute is designed to approach routing the way you would route manually. This design philosophy produces routes that are immediately useable in the field. After all, hitting the ground running is the ultimate test of success for route optimization software.
