Trip structures

PTV Smartour lets you create different trip structures through automatic or manual planning functions. You can plan depot-related pickups and deliveries as well as transports between two locations, as is typically the case for long-distance haulage. Route splits via depots or hubs are also possible.

As a result, different basic structures are possible. These may include round trips, open trips, start depot-free, end depot-free or completely depot-free trips, as well as trips from depot to depot. In addition to the depot assignment, a different fleet location can also be included during planning.

Suggestion function

PTV Smartour supports the trip planner with intelligent and convenient suggestion functions. In the process, the user receives one or more suggestions on different planning alternatives.

In doing so, the expected costs such as extra expenses or additional kilometres are listed and displayed in the map. On this basis, the dispatcher can make the suitable selection after having considered the individual requirements.


1) Order-based suggestion function
PTV Smartour suggests suitable trips for a selected order and then checks all of the conditions, such as loading capacities, time slot or vehicle requirements.

2) Trip and vehicle-based suggestion function
PTV Smartour suggests suitable vehicles for planned trips whilst also taking into account any restrictions.

It is also possible to arrange for the program to suggest suitable orders for selected trips from an order pool. This ensures that trips are better utilised and cost benefits are generated.
