Vehicle scheduling and Route Optimisation

Cut costs, time and Co2 with vehicle route optimisation and delivery scheduling software

Our routing and scheduling system enables users to calculate effective transport schedules for vehicles and drivers based at any number of depots, cutting transport costs and improving fleet efficiency.

How does PTV routing and scheduling software work?

PTV software is highly configurable and capable of handling the wide range of transport constraints that arise in logistics operations. The optimisation system uses details of customer addresses, delivery quantities, time windows, vehicle sizes, driver shift details, and many other transportation parameters.

Using our own highly developed algorithm designed specifically for optimising road-based transport operations, PTV software calculates the most effective delivery and collection sequences with accurate journey times, allocating loads to appropriate vehicles and drivers accordingly. This ensures that the schedules are geographically feasible to meet promised arrival time windows, while improving fleet utilisation and productivity through efficient routes with minimal total mileage incurred and empty running reduced.

The transport planning software enables companies with multiple depots to plan the routes for all their vehicles and drivers centrally as a single planning task.
Depot boundaries can be adjusted dynamically to ensure calls are routed from the most suitable depot according to fleet availability and the geographic spread of orders on the day. This improves overall transport efficiency and avoids having vehicles and drivers standing idle at one depot while hiring extra resources at another.

PTV software helps you:

  • Plan optimised routes for multiple depots, ensuring fuel efficiency across the whole operation
  • Organise delivery schedules for each depot for improved fleet utilisation
  • Improve overall fleet efficiency with flexible depot boundaries
  • Avoid the need to hire extra vehicles at some depots while others have vehicles standing idle
