Time is money. That is why PTV Map&Guide transport route planner is geared to reduce your driving time. With the integrated driving time calculator, Map&Guide supports you in planning the optimum delivery sequence with just a few clicks.

Avoid unnecessary travel and waiting times with the PTV driving time calculator

To calculate the exact driving time is quite complex, especially when several deliveries have to be brought together. Everyone knows the following scenario: Your trucks call at several customers on each route. And they all want their deliveries to be made within a specific time slot during the day. Planning the optimum driving times and delivery sequence can therefore easily take several hours to complete.

How Map&Guide helps you to reduce your driving time:

With the PTV Map&Guide driving time calculator, you can quickly and easily optimise the sequence of the stop-off points on your route. You can perform the calculation based on direct distance, road distance or time slots in which the customer wants the delivery to be made.

With the driving time calculator, you can consider opening times, ramp times, availability as well as fixed start and end points, for example. Save driving time and avoid unnecessary travel, waiting times and transport costs.
