Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2014
10 Company profile X COMPANY PROFILE The Australian logistics industry is facing great challenges, with a rising national freight task set to double by 2030, and an economic climate that puts margins under pressure. Alongside the provision of improved infrastructure, the use of technology will assist the industry to conquer these challenges. As advocated by Michael Byrne (CEO Linfox) during the ALC Forum 2014, the transport and logistics industry needs to get smarter; it needs to start using smart technology solutions to deliver better customer service at a lower cost. ‘Our customers are getting smarter, so we must too.’ PTV Group has the tools and technology to help achieve these goals. The company’s range of logistic software solutions can optimise your transport on all levels, from strategy to execution. Vincent Kobesen (CEO PTV Group) emphasises: ‘There is an increasing demand for integrated transport and logistics applications, and no other company has the wealth of experience like PTV to deliver these solutions. Whether you are a small or medium-sized business, or a large enterprise, we have the solutions that fit your requirements and budget.’ PTV Group has been developing innovative logistic solutions for over 30 years, combining its scientific expertise with operational experience to create solutions that deliver. PTV Group supports thousands of small and large customers around the globe with solutions adapted to local requirements. The company also continuously develops new functionalities and stays on top of the latest technology. Whether you are looking at optimised location planning, sales area planning or fleet optimisation, PTV Group’s tools provide you with the right answers for your strategic decisions. On a tactical and operational level, PTV Group’s solutions help you deliver cost savings on a daily basis. For example, the company’s highly efficient vehicle scheduling and optimisation solutions can support your planning department by automatically planning orders into optimum trips. Trip planning is not only about optimal use of resources, however; a plan also has to comply with statutory regulations, road access restrictions and company-specific agreements. PTV Group’s solutions ensure your planning results are compliant with all these requirements. The tools have been developed with operations in mind, providing the flexibility required to deal with daily challenges and offering great user-friendliness. PTV’s solutions don’t stop with planning; it also provides solutions to improve execution. Via integrated connections to Telematics systems, planned routes can automatically be transferred to an in-vehicle device, while PTV’s navigation solution can provide the optimum route to each customer. Status messages are displayed directly in the back office solution during the execution of each trip, which in turn highlights any delays that may occur. The result is an integrated real-time track and trace solution with live ETA monitoring.
