Load Space Optimization API by PTV xServer

Why use software to plan truck loading?

  • When transporting less than truckload (LTL) shipments or various container types, optimizing use of loading volumes and loading sequence is crucial to remain efficient. Every run when a vehicle’s loading volume is not fully utilized is a loss of revenue. Every extra minute spent at an unloading point, is time lost. Transporting time-sensitive freight, such as fresh and frozen food products, introduces additional constraints since these goods must be delivered within a limited time.

    Keeping an overview of cargo loadings is difficult. Matching loading sequences with stops along routes further increases the complexity of the loading process.

  • Why you should deploy the Load Space Optimization API by PTV xServer

    The Load Space Optimization API automatically and quickly solves complex optimization problems. To get started you simply define the characteristics of the truck's loading space and the transport units. The system automatically delivers a loading space layout which shows the wall distribution and the location of the individual transport units, while accounting for all restrictions.

    Due to its standardized interface, the API will seamlessly integrate into your existing software. Additionally, PTV xServer components can be used as a stand-alone system or in addition to your existing system architecture.

    • View your packing plan in 3D

      The PTV Load Space Optimizer API allows you to view your packing plan interactively and in 3D. This way, you can view the plan from all directions and angles.

    • Different packing modes

      Choose between two packing modes to reduce the loading dimensions or your packing time.

    • Ensure your cargo arrives safely

      With the PTV Load Space Optimizer API, you can take either the allowed orientation of each item or item type and its weight-carrying capacity into consideration. You can ensure that your cargo is placed safely for transportation.

    API Version 2 is the future of PTV xServer as it's designed in a completely new framework. It is easier to understand and as a programmer, you will benefit from improved flexibility and consistency. If your company recently integrated PTV xServer into their software solution, is still in the middle of it or is planning an integration soon, you should look at API Version 2
