Enthusiasts about digital mapping and logistics, Mapotempo (‘Map’ and ‘Time’ in Esperanto) founders, Frédéric Rodrigo (CTO) and Mehdi Jabrane (COO), aim to provide to every business type and size the new generation of route optimization solutions : opened, easy to use, efficient with a business scaled pricing.
In November 2021, Mapotempo will join the Woop company in order to accelerate its growth in last mile delivery.
Woop is Europe’s leading orchestration platform for last mile delivery solutions. Thanks to its entirely online technology, it aggregates and orchestrates, on a single interface, all the delivery offers of numerous partner carriers. Woop identifies for its retail customers different delivery scenarios according to predefined criteria – price, time, carbon impact – allowing them to choose the best offer at the best price, favouring soft mobility as soon as possible.
The integration of Mapotempo with Woop allows the new group to control the orchestration (with the Woop platform) and execution (with Mapotempo tools) of last mile delivery.
Mapotempo and Woop are committed to delivering on two key promises: to optimise costs and improve operational efficiency for its customers, and to support carriers in the digital transformation of their business. The latter is a major task, given that around 80% of routes are still planned manually.
Mapotempo by Woop is a new value proposition of a Delivery Management System with high added value for brands and carriers alike, which contributes to the development of a high-performance and responsible e-commerce.

Supplychain facing new challenges
Home meal delivery, sales force visits, press, medicines delivery, waste pickup… Hundreds of thousands professionnals spend all or part of daytime in their vehicles to deliver, prospect, troubleshoot, pickup or serve.
Nowadays routes planning and their execution become increasingly complicated due to:
- Urban concentration (traffic, parking …)
- Customer expectations (Time window, delivery frequency)
- Competition (customer loyalty, cut costs, get new markets)
- Environmental policy (CO2, tax…)
As an answer, services that are often inadequate
These heavy socio-economic trends significantly complicate needs in planning and route optimization.
To face these changes, new solutions and services must be created. Although the technology of such solutions are today mature, nowadays 80% of optimized vehicles fleet are planned manually because of high costs, rigidity, complexity of deployement and of the key account centric strategy of the software companies on the market.
Route Optimization for every professionnals !
Thanks to the relevance of our technological offer (ready to use SaaS software and our APIs) and the economic models associated with it, our ambition is to democratize the use of route optimization solutions.
From the silk road through the paths network leading to Rome, logistics efficiency (the right product or service at the right time and the right place) is often hand to hand with cartographic precision.
