Karlsruhe, Germany, 14/04/2020. We often only become aware of the fact that health is our most precious asset when it is put at risk. PTV Group now offers a special promotion to health care companies that provide medical equipment and supplies. They can now test PTV’s cloud-based route and tour planning solution for 30 days free of charge without any initial software costs.

Greater transparency for schedulers
The software also includes a new feature that the company developed at short notice for its planning and optimization software for logistics providers. An additional data layer from the company Sixfold, that PTV has added to the digital map of its software, enables users to immediately see what's going on at Europe's borders. Green, orange and red dots show the dispatcher at a glance whether traffic is flowing smoothly, coming to a halt or whether long wait times are to be expected. Queue lengths and expected wait times are displayed for both directions. As a result, the logistics department has access to up-to-date information on additional travel times and possible alternative routes and can thus respond much faster. PTV xServers can also take wait times at borders into account during the routing process.
