Oxford Direct Services is using Collective and FleetRoute to continuously optimise collections
Oxford, the city of Dreaming Spires, is famous the world over for its University and place in history. It is also a major tourist destination and centre for science and technology businesses.
Oxford Direct Services provide commercial waste services to over 1,800 local businesses and aim to help customers save money through better waste management, reducing their carbon footprint through utilising greener technology and making Oxford a more sustainable city.
The company, wholly-owned by Oxford City Council, is optimising its collection routes using software and expertise from Bartec Municipal Technologies. The software uses advanced algorithms to determine the most efficient collection routes for their fleet of refuse vehicles, taking account of up-to-date information about bin weights, vehicle stops, service times and safety restrictions. The new technology builds on the existing operational data from Bartec’s Collective waste management system to continuously optimise collection routes.
