Plan effective routes and optimised schedules at the push of a button
Factor in all constraints automatically
Your transport planners’ job is to optimise fleet use by distributing orders to vehicles optimally and creating efficient schedules for all drivers. In doing so, they must harmonise different goals: For example, the shortest route may not be the fastest route. A balanced distribution of the workload among all drivers may lead to higher overall transportation costs. Minimum wage and legal regulations of driving and rest times vary among countries. Regardless of how experienced your transport planners are – in today’s logistics and supply chain management, this process is far too complex to be done manually.
PTV Route Optimiser supports planners by:
optimally distributing orders to available vehicles
This saves your planners a lot of time that they can spend on strategic tasks and, above all, leads to better decisions. PTV Route Optimiser helps companies cut transportation costs: While companies with small fleets typically save between 7% and 15% with PTV Route Optimiser, companies with larger fleets benefit from savings of 17% or more.
Optimisation of routing and scheduling at the push of a button
As the number of vehicles, depots and deliveries increases, so does the complexity of route planning and scheduling. PTV Route Optimiser calculates all possible solutions and suggests efficient routes and schedules within seconds. Thereby, our software reduces hours of planning to just a few minutes and frees up your transport planners’ time for strategic tasks. And above that, planning routes and schedules with PTV Route Optimiser leads to better and more efficient results.
Comparing available alternatives with ease
PTV Route Optimiser calculates all alternative routes and displays them on a map. The software suggests a suitable vehicle for each trip and provides additional information like the calculated travel time and distance as well as the costs involved. However, your planners have the final say: PTV Route Optimiser simply enables them to consider all options carefully and to make an informed decision. Additionally, planners can manually adjust and change the calculated route anytime or assign an order to a different driver spontaneously.
Factoring in requirements and restrictions automatically
Restrictions such as legal rest times or driving bans, and specifications such as opening times of ramps, make route planning and scheduling highly complex. PTV Route Optimiser’s intelligent algorithms take all constraints into account when calculating optimised routes and schedules.
