The Transport Cost Calculator PTV Map&Guide
Ordinary truck route planners give you limited options to efficiently plan your resources and calculate the transportation costs. This leads to miscalculated freight quotes and eventually to higher costs for your business. The transport cost calculator PTV Map&Guide, on the other hand, calculates your transport costs reliably – down to the penny.
This is done with detailed consideration of vehicle parameters, travel and rest times, toll costs, and many other factors. Simply create your vehicle profiles, enter your desired margin, start routing - and the transport cost calculator will do the rest. You can then insert the result directly to your offer.
The calculated transport costs also provide you with a reliable basis for important business decisions:
- Get an overview of the profitability of potential orders.
- Compare different scenarios.
- Set optimal freight rates and prices.
- Calculate if sub-contracting an order is more profitable.
- Identify potential savings.
Calculation of personnel costs and minimum wage
In addition to vehicle costs, personnel costs are also essential for an accurate calculation basis. However, especially in the case of transnational operations, the calculation can quickly become complex. With PTV Map&Guide, you can calculate the wages of your drivers in accordance with the law throughout Europe. If there is an individual hourly wage, simply enter it. This is compared with the minimum wage requirements of the relevant countries. If your drivers receive the minimum wage, the software calculates your costs independently.
Billing standard "PTV Map&Guide Kilometer"
The "PTV Map&Guide Kilometer" has established itself across Europe as a billing standard for road freight transport. Calculations, quotations and invoices based on this standard are widely accepted and are comparable. This reduces price negotiations and discussions with customers and freight forwarders. It also ensures more trust and transparency along the supply chain.
