What's the difference?

Route planning vs. route optimization

A commercial truck routing, mileage and mapping software calculates the optimal route from a given starting point to one or several given delivery addresses for individual trucks. It automatically considers relevant truck restrictions and planning aspects such as routes unsuited for heavy trucks and Hours of Service (HoS), thereby helping professional truck drivers plan trips that maximize their available hours and minimize their transport costs.

Route optimization software - such as PTV Route Optimizer - does a lot more than that: It optimizes multiple routes for multiple vehicles and drivers simultaneously given a certain order volume. The software distributes orders among the trucks, determines the best order of stops and calculates an optimized route for each truck. The goal of route optimization software is to deploy the entire fleet as efficiently as possible.

Functions of PTV Route Optimizer

Better user experience

PTV Route Optimizer is a lean, intuitive, and web-based app based on powerful algorithms and modern technology. It can be accessed on your PC and laptop, in the office and on the go. No time-consuming integration or training needed. Start planning routes in minutes. Planning and scheduling routes has never been this intuitive and user-friendly. You can configure the app to your preferences, including:

  • Multiple screen usage
  • Manual drag and drop functionality
  • Robust data security

Consideration of restrictions and regulations

In a world without restrictions, creating an itinerary is relatively easy. However, the reality is different. Countless specifications and restrictions make transportation planning an almost impossible task these days. Customers and authorities are placing ever-increasing demands on delivery time windows, loading and unloading points, vehicle specifications and much more. PTV Route Optimizer automatically takes relevant constraints into account, thereby making the planning process a lot easier and more efficient.

Improved delivery performance and punctuality

With route optimization software, you can more easily account for last-minute changes, unforeseen traffic, human error, or other additional factors influencing a timely delivery and make improvements and adjust to risks and disruptions on the fly. Thereby, you improve on time in full (OTIF) delivery and order fulfillment.

Accurate arrival and departure times

The route planning system schedules each delivery down to the minute and enables you to notify all parties of the transport chain about the estimated time of arrival (ETA) and departure. Your customers benefit from greater planning reliability and transparency.

Data import and standardized interfaces

Good input leads to good output: To calculate optimal routes and schedules with PTV Route Optimizer, you need to feed the software with data. That’s why PTV Route Optimizer allows the XLS data import of order and vehicle data. Moreover, we provide an API that facilitates the transfer or order data to the order management app via web service.

Route Optimization on the last mile

Last Mile Delivery of CPG items

Last mile delivery is tricky and by far the most expensive part of the supply chain, accounting for as much as 30-50% of total delivery cost. And every failed delivery attempt, traffic jam or wrong turn drives up the costs even more. That’s why optimizing last mile delivery is critical to overall efficiency and profitability.

Manual planning is unable to consider the various factors and restrictions impacting last mile delivery. That’s why a route optimization software like PTV Route Optimizer is essential for an efficient last mile delivery. The software uses algorithms to assign shipments to tours and vehicles, creates a schedule for the whole fleet and calculates optimized routes.

Emissions Reduction

With PTV Route Optimizer, you cut emissions - and save money doing it. Our route planning and scheduling software calculates efficient routes and schedules for your entire fleet. Orders are combined in an optimized way, and vehicles better utilized. Moreover, with PTV Route Optimizer your vehicles are always on the most efficient available route. The result: lower fuel consumption and lower emissions.
