In­te­grated route-plan­ning pro­gram launched

New Zealand LCV - - BEST BARS. BY FAR. -

GPS TRACK­ING AND FLEET MAN­AGE­MENT SPE­CIAL­IST, Tele­trac Nav­man, has an­nounced a tech­nol­ogy in­te­gra­tion with PTV Group’s trans­port plan­ning and op­ti­mi­sa­tion solution.

Avail­able glob­ally, the New Zealand com­pany’s in­te­gra­tion with PTV Group lo­gis­tics soft­ware en­hances Tele­trac Nav­man Di­rec­tor’s end-to-end work­flow solution for trans­port op­er­a­tors.

Nav­man says the part­ner­ship al­lows fleet man­agers to re­duce dra­mat­i­cally the time and man­power needed to plan, op­ti­mise, and ex­e­cute de­liv­ery routes.

The ro­bust rout­ing soft­ware can be in­te­grated with Di­rec­tor in all coun­tries where it’s sold.

The in­te­gra­tion through Tele­trac Nav­man’s open API of­fers car­ri­ers a sin­gle in­ter­face to op­ti­mise the list of stops driv­ers need to make in a given time pe­riod.

It takes into ac­count ve­hi­cle di­men­sions, load ca­pac­ity, road re­stric­tions, haz­ardous ma­te­ri­als and other con­fig­u­ra­tions that may af­fect the route.

Dis­patch­ers re­ceive real-time up­dates, in­clud­ing ve­hi­cle lo­ca­tion, speed and mileage, and can ex­am­ine over­all trip du­ra­tion, han­dling, driver time and the stops com­pleted, to mea­sure against their goals, Nav­man says.

For driv­ers, the in­te­gra­tion pro­vides turn-by-turn directions, and elim­i­nates the need for pa­per in­voices and proof of de­liv­ery.

“We’re com­mit­ted to serv­ing the trans­porta­tion in­dus­try by bring­ing greater ef­fi­ciency to fleet man­age­ment and de­liv­er­ing tremen­dous value to our cus­tomers,” says Tele­trac Nav­man’s Asia Pa­cific vice pres­i­dent and managing di­rec­tor, Ian Daniel. “PTV Group lo­gis­tics soft­ware will help our cus­tomers au­to­mate route plan­ning and mon­i­tor ex­e­cu­tion of the route plan, fur­ther con­nect­ing ev­ery step in the trans­porta­tion work­flow.”

PTV Aus­tralia’s busi­ness de­vel­op­ment di­rec­tor, Joost Bekker, says PTV Group has more than 37 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in op­ti­mis­ing mo­bil­ity and trans­port.

“The lo­gis­tics in­dus­try is un­der pres­sure due to in­creas­ing costs, com­bined with grow­ing cus­tomer ex­pec­ta­tions. With in­te­grated so­lu­tions of Tele­trac Nav­man and PTV Group, we can help them in­crease ef­fi­ciency, re­duce costs and im­prove cus­tomer ser­vice.”
