Our client, a busy entrepreneurial distributor, needed color-coded distribution maps showing shipping time-frames based on distribution center locations. In addition, the client wanted to see where distributor locations would need to be to ensure 2-3 day shipping to every state. Lastly, he needed maps created showing sales territories.
Our team found an online tool called MapChart.net. This free tool allows users to create completely customizable maps with colors and descriptions, and includes not only US maps, but world maps as well. This, in conjunction with FedEx Freight shipping maps, gave us a very clear, visually pleasing picture of which locations would be best for additional distribution centers.
Using Mapchart.net and FedEx maps, the client was able to easily identify sales territories and determine best locations for future distribution centers.
