Route Optimization & Scheduling
Intelligent algorithms for solving complex optimisation problems in logistics and transport
One vehicle, five orders - even in this seemingly simple situation, 120 different options are available to execute all orders. The complexity of the optimisation task increases rapidly as soon as more vehicles and orders are added, truck attributes and time restrictions should be considered, and different objectives have to be weighed up against each other. PTV xServer offers intelligent methods and algorithms that support you in solving even the most complex logistical challenges efficiently.
