Integrated Skills’ ( Netherlands-based partner GeoCo (, is utilising RouteSmart for ArcGIS to provide optimised gritting and waste/recycling collection routes for municipalities.

The owner of GeoCo, Joris Westendorp, has been providing logistics and route planning consultancy services for many years and, after initial assitance from ISL has recently applied RouteSmart for ArcGIS to waste and gritting projects.

According to Joris, “RouteSmart is ideal for waste & winter maintenance clients as it is a true “high density” solution that enables users to manipulate individual property data, such as container type and number, as well as street parameters.” The Dutch waste-collection sector is looking for ways to increase recycling rates and improve operational efficiency at the same time. Joris continues “The powerful ArcGIS platform enables users to think visually providing a geospatial ‘view’ of problems. The World leading algorithms within the software produce optimal routes based on user defined parameters.” Joris concludes by saying that RouteSmart is the “… number one choice for route optimisation in the Dutch waste sector”

Sales Director of Integrated Skills, Alan Paget, states that “GeoCo is one of a number of ISL partners on continental Europe actively applying RouteSmart to optimisation projects”. ISL has partners in Poland, Germany, Italy and Scandinavia. Expect more to join the partner community in the year ahead”.

ISL has sold over 80 licences of the RouteSmart software across the UK, Europe and the Middle East. RouteSmart is the corporate route optimisation tool of choice for organisations including TNT Post in England, Airtricity in Northern Ireland, Glasgow City Council in Scotland, Averda in Lebanon, SEI Toscana in Italy and Cardiff Council in Wales.
