UPS plans delivery routes for 21M packages on Google Cloud - CIO Dive
- UPS is using Google Cloud Platform to design routing software, which saves the shipping company up to $400 million annually, according to a blog post from Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian.
- The logistics company uses the software to inform the driver where to go "every step of the way" and has cut fuel consumption by 10 million gallons each year. The software directs drivers throughout their 120 pick-up and delivery stops and even accounts for lunch breaks, said UPS CIO Juan Perez, during Google Cloud Next.
- UPS is also using Google's BigQuery for comprehensive forecasting with its one billion data points created daily, including the weight, shape, size, facility capacity and customer data, said Perez. The Google platform enables data analytics while running machine learning across the data points.
