Improve efficiency of your fleet and business
The basis for efficient route planning are efficient territories. That is why PTV Route Optimiser enables you to strategically optimise your depot and logistics network. In addition to that, you gain better control of your resources by linking the sales process with warehousing and the transport system. That improves the information flow and ensures that everyone involved knows the status of orders at any time.
Is your fleet as efficient as it can be? The software makes proposals on how to adjust the core fleet size, improve the mix of vehicles or save vehicles by double shifting them or by combining collections with deliveries. It also allows for seasonal planning with peaks and troughs and helps you to reduce your carbon footprint by saving miles and resources.
“With PTV Route Optimiser we speeded up the daily planning process and provided both cost and time savings throughout the distribution operation.”
Ian Wilson, Director, JBT Distribution

PTV Route Optimiser is browser-based, which means that the programme runs online and can easily be accessed via the internet. There is no need for any dedicated client software, enabling you to work wherever you are.
“We looked at several options for planning partners and we decided on Route Optimiser as they were able to integrate their system with our sage software, since then we have added TomTom WebFLEET into the mix as well, so it gives us the complete package”.
