• Intelligent algorithms for solving complex optimisation problems in logistics and transport

    One vehicle, five orders - even in this seemingly simple situation, 120 different options are available to execute all orders. The complexity of the optimisation task increases rapidly as soon as more vehicles and orders are added, truck attributes and time restrictions should be considered, and different objectives have to be weighed up against each other. PTV xServer offers intelligent methods and algorithms that support you in solving even the most complex logistical challenges efficiently.


Route optimisation and scheduling at a glance

  • Sequence planning
  • Calculate the most efficient order to process your jobs at the push of a button.

  • Restrictions
  • Consider time restrictions and priorities such as time windows and rush orders.

  • Loading plan
  • Determine how to load your vehicles to save time during loading and unloading.

  • Route calculation
  • Calculate the most efficient route at the touch of a button, taking into account truck-specific restrictions.

  • Arrival time
  • Calculate exact times of arrival and flexibly reschedule if delays occur.

  • Optimise your entire logistics chain - from planning to delivery

    PTV xServer covers all steps of route optimisation and scheduling: It determines the ideal order of stops and calculates optimal routes. Do you have to consider opening hours of ramps or want to prioritise certain orders? As soon as you enter these conditions and all your preferences in the system, they are taken into account when calculating your tours. Real-time traffic data allows you to react to current traffic conditions and GPS data simplifies the monitoring of your fleet. For you this means: You increase the efficiency of your entire logistics chain and make maximum use of your vehicle fleet.

  • Ensure maximum use of your available capacities

    With PTV xServer you maximise the utilisation of your fleet and optimise the loading of your vehicles. PTV xServer supports you in combining pick-ups and deliveries in a smart way, making maximum use of available loading meters and evenly utilising your vehicles. This increases the profitability of every journey and thereby of all your logistics processes.

  • Integrate our components for fleet planning and scheduling seamlessly into existing systems

    PTV xServer offers the knowledge of four decades of transport planning in a state-of-the-art software development kit (SDK). Flexible programming interfaces (APIs) enable the seamless integration of specific functionalities into your own system landscape.
