PTV Group presents its expanded logistics portfolio for the first time at Multimodal from 13th – 15th June 2023. Through new corporate mergers, the logistics expert has been able to sustainably expand its portfolio – and has optimum solutions with state-of-the-art development at the ready for stable and yet simultaneously sustainable supply chains. OptiFlow uses outstanding algorithms to take logistics optimisation to a whole new level.
In combination with the proven route planning solution PTV Route Optimiser and the functions provided by PTV Developer Components, visitors to PTV’s exhibition stand B3 in the BIFA Freight Forwarding Village will be immersed in the logistics world of the future.
This algorithm could even be record-breaking!
At the heart of any trip planning is the problem of capacitive route optimisation. Added to the limited capacity of the trucks are other restrictions and, of course, time constraints. With OptiFlow, the transportation service provider can solve the complex puzzle of distribution in a flash: In close cooperation with KU Leuven university, algorithms have been developed that work faster and more precisely than even the best academic algorithms. The software is now expanding PTV Group’s logistics portfolio.
Solutions for low transportation costs and more sustainability
In addition to the new components in the PTV logistics portfolio, the proven PTV solutions for logistics optimisation are also part of the presentation: The software for complex logistics optimisation, PTV Route Optimiser, as well as the new generation of logistics and geographic APIs, PTV Developer. The portfolio therefore focuses not only on optimal route planning, but also on the greatest possible cost optimisation, automated scheduling and time savings – which ultimately leads to sustainable logistics solutions.
Advanced SaaS products and prospects
PTV Group integrated the Belgian route planning software provider Conundra into its global logistics portfolio at the end of 2022. Through the merger, PTV is continuing its global consolidation course and further strengthening its logistics product range.
The merging of Conundra’s advanced SaaS products with PTV’s software solutions opens up additional potential for innovation and growth. Logistics expert Oliver Mangas, Director Customer Excellence at PTV, is enthusiastic: “By bundling expertise between PTV and Conundra in the field of trip optimisation, a strong new logistics portfolio has been created, which we are putting our hearts and minds into for our customers.”
