A plan is only as good as its execution. Therefore, the planner's job doesn’t end with a finalized schedule. In fact, your planners must keep an eye on the progress of all vehicles that are on the road. Additionally, planners need view reports to continuously check if routes and schedules could be optimized and evaluate strategic decisions.
Turn the complexity of route planning and scheduling into efficiency with PTV Route Optimizer. The software helps your planners keep an overview of all facts and figures: They can create reports and analyze all processes of your supply chain, stay in control of all resources and identify problems and potentials.
Viewing routes on a map gives your planners a quick overview of the status of all deliveries. Which routes are completed, in progress or planned? Is a vehicle close to an order that came in recently? Is the truck available to accept it? The map helps your planners answer these questions and act quickly.
Keep vehicle-specific information
Not all vehicles and drivers are available every day, and not all vehicles are suitable for every task. It’s difficult to keep an overview of all these restrictions. PTV Route Optimizer helps you with this complex task. You can store vehicle-specific information as well as the working times and qualifications of your drivers in the system and use this information when planning routes and schedules.
Compare plans with actual performance
How accurate is your planning? With PTV Route Optimizer’s “target vs. actual” comparison you can contrast expectations with reality. Do delays occur regularly on a specific route? Do the same customers regularly receive their deliveries late? Discover potential for improvement and adjust as needed.
Create reports and analyses
How many miles has your fleet covered in recent days, weeks or months? How much fuel was consumed? Which vehicles are most heavily loaded? Thorough analyses and precise reports of past performance help you optimize routes and schedules in the future.
