Arctic Glacier & Descartes
Arctic Glacier is using Descartes’ strategic route planning solution to optimize ice distribution from over 100 facilities and 1,000 vehicles to 75,000 customer locations across the U.S. and Canada. “To minimize our operating costs, we need to reset our network multiple times annually because of large demand fluctuations and our aggressive, acquisition-driven growth strategy,” said Elizabeth DiFazio, director, routing and order scheduling at Arctic Glacier. “The Descartes solution allows us to quickly execute network reroutes, which helps us capture fuel, labour and equipment savings, cost-effectively fold acquisitions into our network and increase delivery productivity in the peak summer season.”
