Organizations are often looking for ways to improve cost effectiveness, process efficiency, and cycle time. United Parcel Services (UPS) has developed an optimal-route tool that allows the delivery service to be more efficient in these performance areas. ORION, UPS' new on-road integrated optimization and navigation program, is an automated system that uses algorithms to devise optimal routes for its drivers and is transforming package delivery.

In this presentation, Ryan Mervyn who is the former ORION project manager and current engineering coordinator at UPS, and Peter Frohling who is the current ORION manager, provide a general overview of UPS' ORION program, the results and significance seen from ORION, and the advanced analytics used.
