If you are into the last mile delivery process, then creating and managing the delivery routes is one of the biggest problems you will face in the whole delivery process. If the courses for delivery are not planned properly, then, in the end, it’s you and your driver who will suffer the most, and thus leaving a significant impact on your last-mile delivery. Zeo Route Planner has always tried to tailor those features to manage delivery addresses easily.

Keeping all the delivery process complications in mind, we developed Zeo Route Planner, the ultimate stop for all your delivery management. We tried to develop those features that can help in the proper management of the delivery process from the dispatcher side and the driver side.

With Zeo Route Planner’s help, you get a wide range of options to import your addresses into the app. The app provides methods such as excel import, image capture, QR/Bar code scan to import all your addresses into the app.

We have recently developed another feature, which will help you directly import a list of addresses from Google Maps to the Zeo Route Planner app. Then from there, you can optimize your routes and start the delivery process.

We have talked about the optimization process in Google Maps, which you can read from here. Since Google Maps allows only 9 stops, we don’t recommend using it, but we have done something that can help you get your list of addresses into the Zeo Route Planner. We have received a few feedback from small business drivers that they need some provision in the app to load the address straight from the Google Map apps. We being a customer-oriented service, took up that feedback and developed this provision for those drivers who get the list of addresses shared from Google Maps.

Let’s see how you can import all your list of addresses from Google Maps to the Zeo Route Planner app. We recommend watching this YouTube video tutorial to get the proper insight into how you can directly load the address from Google Maps to the Zeo Route app.
