Intelligent route planning:
Save costs and CO2 with the right software

Why do I need route planning software for my logistics ?

All companies that have or depend on transport and delivery tasks know this: when it's time for delivery vehicles and trucks to hit the road, planning and scheduling tours is crucial. Plan faster. Plan better, use the fleet more efficiently and produce less CO2. These are the goals, of the modern economy. However, increasing stops, daily restrictions and vast amounts of new data are making route planning more and more complex. In addition, the costs for fuel and personnel are rising. Do you still feel up to these planning tasks with Excel, paper and Google Maps? Or are you looking for software that digitises route planning and route optimisation - on the web and as an app? TransIT from gts offers a digital planning cockpit and reporting tool. For logistics planners, fleet managers, dispatchers and anyone who manages mobile deployment of employees or a fleet.

Plan your logistics tours cost-efficiently with the right software now.

Would you like to improve the efficiency of your dispatching and planning, increase the profitability of the fleet and reduce with your fleet CO2-emissions?

Move away from Excel, paper and Google Maps now! Switch to route planning that digitises processes including an app, web solutions, a planning cockpit and reporting.

Using route planning software saves you time and money.

How does TransIT from gts work? The route planning software uses algorithms, which, admittedly, often promise many tools for route planning. They promise lower costs in logistics. But if the drivers then try to drive these planned routes, it quickly becomes clear that important details such as turning restrictions, opening hours or maximum transport duration have not been taken into account. TransIT's algorithms go one step further. They automatically include the specific requirements for your branch in the planning. Routes thus become not only efficient, but also "drivable". Improve your route planning - and your business - with the help of TransIT! Our software is defined by factors such as flexibility, service orientation, adjusting to increasing traffic flows, digitalisation, rising costs of personnel, fuel and tolls. Achieve more turnover and competitiveness through digital route planning. An optimised routing plan saves an average of 15% in costs compared to manual planning. From 15 vehicles upwards, at least one route can be combined into existing routes. Since the vehicles drive shorter distances, fuel consumption is lower and less CO2 is emitted. In addition, optimized routes are more evenly utilised. This saves overtime and stress for the employees.

How does TransIT optimise your route planning?

TransIT implements route planning significantly faster than manual solutions. The handling of large amounts of data is simplified. For example, you can optimise 3,000 routes in the shortest possible time. You can use the time saved to go through planning alternatives and continuously improve the operational business.

These advantages make TransIT the ideal software for route planning and route optimisation.

TransIT is simple.

The software automatically creates route plans and can also take into account even the most complex requirements (e.g. heterogeneous vehicle fleets, multiple capacity dimensions, opening hours etc.).

TransIT is efficient and sustainable.

Because our applications are modular they can be adapted to your requirements at any time.

TransIT is future-proof.

Benefit from the continuous development of the software and our cooperation with leading universities (e.g. RWTH Aachen, University of Mainz) and research institutions such as Fraunhofer.

Route optimisation with software:
How your company benefits.

The entire workflow with TransIT is digitised: Create optimised routing plans in the planning cockpit. Release them and transfer them to your employees' app. Monitor the status of all orders and employee vehicles in real time. Detect delays and proactively notify your customers. Carry out automated target vs. actual comparisons to continuously improve your planning. Use extensive reporting options to increase quality and profitability.

These companies already benefit from
route optimisation through TransIT:

Route optimisation for many industries.

Our customers include companies from very different industries. Examples include: postal and parcel services, service companies, wholesale companies, wholesale bakeries, waste disposal companies, medical laboratories and passenger transport companies. The algorithms of the TransIT software offer endless possibilities to meet the different requirements of the industries in terms of planning.

How does route planning work?

The starting point is the transport or delivery order: a person is to be transported from A to B, goods are to be collected and delivered.

To do this, you create new orders in the tour planning software. These have at least one address and one delivery window. With the help of automated geocoding, the system assigns longitude and latitude to the addresses, similar to navigation software.

In order to optimise tours, a vehicle fleet is also created. This contains vehicles that are available at certain times with certain characteristics. The route optimisation software determines whether an order can be carried out with a vehicle by assigning qualifications or other properties such as vehicle capacity.

This is followed by the actual route optimisation: The TransIT software uses highly efficient algorithms specially developed by gts to distribute the orders to the vehicles and carry out sequence optimisation. Driving times and distances between orders are calculated concretely.

Simple practical example:
This is what the optimised route plan looks like.

Original route: 59 km

Optimised route: 53 km

Using the TransIT software for route planning, you save 11 % distance, CO2 and time in this case.
