City Route Optimization
To address our environmental impact and serve as a trusted partner to our customers, we built, tested and implemented City Route Optimization (CRO) technology. This development employs artificial intelligence and historical data to streamline how shipments are routed in our ABF Freight LTL network to ensure every truck is filled to optimal capacity.
As part of our work to collect, analyze and report Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, ArcBest Technologies developed a dashboard and utilized AI technology to expedite processes and provide more insight. With the dashboard, we can filter emissions by type, equipment, location and timeframe, giving us a holistic approach to measuring our emissions and enabling us to set targets for reductions and monitor progress toward those targets. Through AI document processing, we efficiently captured data on electricity and water usage at our corporate locations.
