PTV xSERVER - Load Space Optimization API
LOAD SPACE OPTIMIZATION FOR MINIMIZING FREE SPACE
Optimize cargo loadings by minimizing free volumes and considering unloading sequence
Why should you optimise load space with PTV xServer?
The PTV xServer Load Space Optimisation API automatically and quickly solves these complex optimization problems: You simply define the characteristics of the truck's loading space and the transport units. The system automatically delivers a loading space layout, which shows the wall distribution and the location of the individual transport units under consideration of all restrictions. Due to its standardised interface, the API perfectly integrates into other software solutions. For example, you can easily connect it with other PTV xServer components or use it as a stand-alone component with your existing system architecture.
Load packages in an order that enables quick and easy unloading and group items together that are destined for the same delivery stops.
Consider sequencing constraints
Take both the allowed orientation of each item or item type and its weight carrying capacity into consideration. This way, you can make sure that your cargo is placed safely for transportation.
Ensure your cargo arrives safely
The PTV xServer Load Space Optimization API allows you to visualize your packing plan interactively and in 3D. This way, you can view the results from all directions and angles.
Visualise your packing plan in 3D
Choose between two packing modes to reduce either the loading meters or your packing time.
Different packing modes
PTV xLOCATE SERVER
PTV Route Optimizer enables you to create well-balanced territories, divide deliveries into schedules, and determine the best plan of action for your business.
PTV xROUTE SERVER
PTV xRoute Server calculates routes, determines road distances and travel times, and calculates toll costs and emissions values. Vehicle profiles and routing behaviours can be configured as needed. Lorry routing takes truck attributes, driving times and rest periods into account.
PTV xTOUR SERVER
The PTV xTour Server creates efficient trip plans for transportation logistics and sales forces. It considers customer time limits, depot opening hours, driving time, rest periods and vehicle capacities.
PTV xServer allow you to plan and change clusters based on locations (customer addresses, postcode areas etc.). Common use cases are the management of field representatives, the planning of warehouse locations and their delivery areas as well as delivery planning.
PTV xServer are designed for processing big amounts of data and therefore predestined for companies with an extensive field force and / or numerous locations to consider.
