Teletrac Navman, a global leader in GPS tracking and fleet management solutions, has announced a new integration with PTV Group‘s transport planning and optimisation solution. Available globally, this integration with PTV Group logistics software enhances Teletrac Navman DIRECTOR‘s end-to-end workflow solution for carriers; with this partnership, fleet managers can dramatically reduce the time and manpower needed to plan, optimise, and execute delivery routes.

The integration through Teletrac Navman‘s open API offers carriers a single interface to optimise the list of stops drivers need to complete in a given time period, taking into account vehicle dimensions, load capacity, road restrictions, hazardous materials and other configurations that may affect the route. Dispatchers receive real-time updates, including vehicle location, speed and mileage, and are able to drill down into overall trip duration, handling and driver time and stops completed to measure against their goals. For drivers, the integration provides turn-by-turn directions and eliminates the need for paper invoices and proof of delivery.

“We‘re committed to serving the transportation industry by bringing greater efficiency to fleet management and delivering tremendous value to our customers,” said Ian Daniel, vice president and managing director Asia Pacific at Teletrac Navman. “We‘re thrilled to add PTV‘s software to our growing list of integrations. PTV Group logistics software will help our customers automate route planning and monitor execution of the route plan; further connecting every step in the transportation workflow.”

Joost Bekker, business development director, PTV Australia, said PTV Group has more than 37 years of experience in optimising mobility and transport around the globe.

“We‘re very excited about the partnership with Teletrac Navman. We complement each other in our drive to save our customers time and money and improving safety with compliant and safe driving plans”, said. “The logistics industry is under pressure due to increasing costs, combined with growing customer expectations. With integrated solutions of Teletrac Navman and PTV Group, we can help them increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve customer service.”
