Functions of PTV Map&Guide

Truck-optimised routing

PTV Map&Guide offers various vehicle profiles for routing and considers a large number of truck restrictions, including vehicle characteristics (e.g. height, width, axle load), dangerous goods data, toll roads, truck-free zones, traffic information and permanent construction sites, as well as driving and rest times.

Sequence and time window optimisation

The routing software determines the optimal sequence of your stops, taking into account time windows at the loading bay, opening hours, individual time windows, and fixed start and end times.

Transport cost calculation

The software provides you with a clear and reliable overview of all transport costs incurred (costs for vehicle, personnel, route and vehicle-dependent toll), which you can then detail in your offer.

Toll cost calculation

During route planning, the integrated toll calculator automatically takes into account current tariffs in all toll roads, bridges, tunnels and ferries - and sums the expected toll costs.

Calculation of arrival time (ETA)

The route planning software PTV Map&Guide calculates the expected arrival time (Estimated Time of Arrival) based on historical values as well as information on construction sites and road closures. It updates the forecast during the journey, based on the current traffic situation.

Price Calculation & Quotation Preparation

Based on your desired margin, the software creates a price calculation and a proposal for a realistic and economical sales price.

Billing standard "PTV Map&Guide Kilometer"

The "PTV Map&Guide Kilometer" has established itself as a billing standard for road freight transport in Europe. Calculations, quotations, and invoices based on this are widely accepted and are comparable.

Prepare quotes for large-scale logistics tenders with tender+

The powerful tender+ extension processes large amounts of data and automatically calculates transport and toll costs, distances, and travel times, as well as emissions. This eliminates time-consuming manual address entries and settings.

Show vehicle positions on a map

PTV Map&Guide shows you the positions of all vehicles currently on the road on a map and informs you about the status of the route and each individual stop (requires the use of the PTV Driver app).

Emissions calculation

PTV Map&Guide enables you to get detailed calculations of CO2 and other polluting emissions of your routes, and to retrieve them as a report. The calculation is based on DIN EN16258.

Visualisation of customer data

In addition to route calculation, PTV Map&Guide also offers you the option of importing, managing and visualising customer data on a map.

Guided navigation

In combination with PTV Navigator, the planned routes can be transmitted directly to your truck drivers via an interface, without losing any data.
