Although a fixed journey schedule was working perfectly well when it came to supplying Van Marckeâs stores, static planning was leading to bottlenecks in transports to installers. These bottlenecks included an uneven distribution of the work across drivers. Switching to dynamic journey planning with PTV Smartour not only solved this problem, but also laid the foundations for a 24-hour delivery service. The IT department integrated the PTV xLocate module into their own ERP system. This ensures that every address is instantly verified upon being entered into the system. With its solution used by TIN - Van Marcke, the PTV Group won the Truck ICT Award 2015 in the category âMost innovative software solution for logisticsâ. With 105 shops in Belgium, Luxembourg and northern France, Van Marcke is a household name in the field of bathrooms, home spa systems, kitchens, sustainable water and heating systems.
