When distributing orders to drivers and calculating routes, the software automatically takes all constraints into account and makes sure the suggested schedule meets them.

Restrictions in routing and scheduling

Customers often specify opening hours or narrow time windows during which you must deliver. Your drivers might stand in front of locked doors and face long waiting times should they not arrive in time. You might even have to pay a contractual penalty fee for late deliveries.

 

Regulations, such as driving and rest periods, further complicate route planning and scheduling. With PTV Route Optimiser, you can be certain that all constraints are accounted for: Simply save restrictions, such as fixed appointments or opening times, in the system. It automatically considers them when calculating routes and schedules for your drivers.
