Circuit is a last-mile delivery optimisation service that seeks to cut down on time and fuel consumption.

By picking the shortest route with the lowest amount of traffic, Circuit seeks to make delivering packages a far smoother experience, leading to faster deliveries and happier drivers.

Circuit's last mile tech can lead to faster deliveries and happier drivers.

A delivery’s “last mile” is what it sounds like: a package’s final stretch before it gets delivered to its owner.

The stretch from the vendor or warehouse is usually pretty simple. The delivery will be put into a van or truck that will drive down a freeway to the destined city. However, once it gets to the city, it becomes a bit harder to navigate an efficient delivery route between the various city streets.

Circuit has already saved over 100,000 drivers 2.2 million man hours every month.

Circuit seeks to make this process easier. If a van has 20 packages to be delivered around a city, Circuit will put together the most efficient delivery route, saving time, money, fuel, and leading to more deliveries.

Circuit has already saved over 100,000 drivers 2.2 million man hours every month, and has a bright future ahead if the company keeps up its impressive rate of growth.
