Freight cost reduction thanks to transport planning software
- Reduce mileage
- Save fuel
- Use fleet capacity more efficiently
- Use loading space maximally
- Optimise your logistics processes
Do your freight costs increase disproportionately with a growth in business? Then PTV Route Optimiser is the right tool for you: Our software enables you to make optimal transport plans and ensures that your vehicles always take the best route possible. Install PTV Route Optimiser to reduce transport costs and boost the efficiency of route planning and vehicle scheduling.
Reduce transport costs by cutting kilometres, fuel and tolls
How does routing and scheduling software reduce transport costs? By distributing orders to available vehicles optimally and calculating optimised routes for each vehicle automatically. Investing in a software solution pays off quickly – especially if your drivers make several trips per day and several stops per trip. Why? Because the software recognises potential for improvement that even experienced planners miss.
What does “optimised routes” mean? It means that every vehicle drives fewer kilometres and thus consumes less fuel. In turn, this reduces CO2 emissions. But that's not all. PTV Route Optimiser automatically calculates the toll costs that will arise on the chosen route. You can either include these in your offer and pass them on to your customers or avoid them by choosing a different route.
Freight cost reduction through more efficient vehicle use
Routing and scheduling software ensures a more efficient distribution of orders among all available vehicles. In addition, deliveries and collections can be combined to avoid empty runs. This leads to a higher utilisation of your fleet. In other words, you need less vehicles for the same volume of orders or you can execute more orders with the same number of vehicles. By using your fleet more efficiently, you lower operative expenses and thus reduce transport costs.
Lower transportation costs thanks to load space optimisation
Your vehicles are assets, which you should use as efficiently as possible. A truck that is not fully loaded, does not generate the highest possible turnover – yet causes full costs. PTV Route Optimiser calculates the optimal distribution of orders on vehicles and ensures maximum productivity and utilisation. The result: Optimally loaded vehicles and a significant freight cost reduction.
Sometimes the maximally permitted weight of a vehicle is reached before the available loading metres are used up. Therefore, PTV Route Optimiser does not only consider the maximum weight but also the available space.
