PTV’s route planning solution to healthcare challenges - 30 days for free

Healthcare companies can test PTV Route Optimiser free of charge for 30 days / New feature: Wait times at borders

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. The software also includes a new feature displaying current wait times at Europe’s borders.

With this campaign, PTV Group aims to support companies in the healthcare sector, enabling them to take effective measures and optimize their transport logistics chains during the current global crisis.

PTV Route Optimizer CL is a cloud-based solution that can be implemented within a single working day without disrupting daily operations. It allows for automatic and optimal allocation of all orders to vehicles and drivers and calculates the best routes.

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.
