PTV Group recognized as World Market Leader for Mobility Planning Software

In a second study, PTV ranks fifth among digital pioneers

Karlsruhe, November 28, 2019. PTV Group is one of the 450 German companies identified as global market leaders. The transportation and logistics software vendor made it onto the list of world market leaders 2020 recently published by the University of St. Gallen and the magazine WirtschaftsWoche. In the ranking of digital pioneers in the SME sector that was published yesterday, PTV is also ranked fifth out of a total of 4,000 evaluated companies.

The so-called “world market leader index” is compiled annually under the scientific guidance of Professor Dr Christoph Müller of the University of St. Gallen. The selection criteria are extremely strict: The companies must rank first or second in the relevant market segment and operate on at least three continents. In addition, half of the annual revenue of at least 50 million euros must be generated abroad. The jury bases its assessment on the current annual financial statements (for listed companies) or the publications in the Federal Gazette.

Christian U. Haas, CEO of PTV Group, is delighted that PTV has been recognized as World Market Leader by this internationally renowned university: "This assessment is proof of our work to date. At the same time, it is an incentive for us to further expand our high standards as mobility experts and as the world's number one for all facets of transportation".

In a second study, Munich Strategy consultants, together with Amsterdam-based digital consultancy Bloom, assessed the progress made in transforming around 4,000 German companies. With a digital score of 89.75, PTV came fifth, 19 percent above the average. Two-thirds of this digital score is calculated from the digitization of the entire value chain and one-third from the company's growth power.

The PTV Group has around 30 offices on all continents. 900 employees worldwide work on innovative solutions for the planning and optimization of transportation and logistics. Since this year, CEO Christian U. Haas, CTO Dr. Peter Overmann and CFO Klaus Lechner have been directing the business of the Karlsruhe-based company.
