UPS saving millions at the pump, emphasizes importance of planning ahead

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Gas prices are falling but remain high. As of Monday morning, the average price for a gallon in Omaha is $4.41.

However, UPS has been able to get the most out of its fuel, saving them from extra stops at the pump.

UPS began using its ORION program (On-Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation) in 2012 to make delivery more efficient.

The system has undergone a dynamic optimization update this year, which recalculates individual package delivery routes throughout the day as traffic conditions and commitments change.

A UPS driver makes between 120-175 stops a day. The ORION system constantly calculates routes for every combination of those stops to ensure top efficiency, evaluating more than 200,000 alternative ways to run a single route.
