By [email protected] - 21st June 2016 - 13:37

A new strategic partnership between global road transport organisation IRU and German software developer PTV Group will develop new standards and services for route planning across Europe and beyond. New services will be successively rolled-out in markets in Europe and elsewhere, developing a consistent route planning standard, with comparable operational, cost calculation and billing elements, for transport operators, shippers and logistics planners. Based on the market-leading route planning software product PTV Map&Guide, the new services are fully tailored to local conditions and challenges and will be developed and globally promoted in cooperation with IRU members in each market. The new services will also enable transport operators, large and small, to become more efficient through better operational route planning, to lower costs and to lower carbon emissions.
