With PTV Smartour, vehicle control and route assignment are performed directly from transport planning. Thanks to the telematic connection, the software reads consignment information relevant for transport from the ERP system and applies it to delivery route planning. The information about the planned routes is then read back into the system.
The dispatcher at the central office can see exactly where his vehicles are currently located. This gives him a complete overview of the status of all routes and consignments. And he can take the current route into account for planning the next route.
Do you wish to use your trip planning software at several workstations, but all users should access the same data?
Right. Several employees will need access to all task fields, but only some will have planning rights? Perfect. PTV Smartour is just what you need.
For example two or more dispatchers can share a planning area. This means orders from both employees are planned to the same resources (e.g. drivers and vehicles).
You plan depot-based transports as round trip. Then you will also have long-distance transports, i.e. ones without depots, to coordinate. Wouldn‘t it be better to display these transports in one mutual plan? No problem for PTV Smartour.
With the help of PTV Smartour a scheduler can plan a combination of local and long-distance trips.
Differing opening hours of incoming goods departments. Limited clearance on customers‘ sites. Tail lift required. Your system can‘t display all this? Then simply store this information in PTV Smartour.
Opening hours Mon. 04:00-12:00 and 14:00-18:00, Tues.-Thurs. 7:00-16:00, Fri. 7:00-12:00. Storing this data in PTV Smartour is no problem, so you can profit from automatic trip planning.
The keyword here is „Green Logistics“. Calculate pollutant emissions, transfer the data to other systems and continue editing them there. So there‘s nothing to get in the way of emission offsetting.
For example as proof on an invoice or delivery note. Use this emissions data as the basis of offsetting and you can set yourself apart from the rest with one of
tomorrow‘s priorities today.
