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.
