Teletrac Navman Announces Global Integration with PTV Group to Provide Sophisticated Route Planning for Fleet Management

Together, DIRECTOR® and PTV SMARTOUR simplify route planning and optimization for carriers and drivers

 

Glenview, IL, April 17, 2017 — Teletrac Navman, a global leader in GPS tracking and fleet management solutions, today announced a new integration with PTV Group’s transport planning and optimization 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, optimize, and execute delivery routes. The robust routing software can be integrated with DIRECTOR in all countries it is sold.

The integration through Teletrac Navman’s open API offers carriers a single interface to optimize 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 not only provides turn by turn directions, but also 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 Daren Lauda, general manager of North America, 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.”

“PTV Group has more than 37 years of experience in optimizing mobility and transport around the globe. We’re excited to partner with a company that shares our commitment to saving our customers time and money and enhancing road safety,” said Barry Glick, President, PTV America. “Motor carriers face increased demands to deliver goods faster and more reliably, and together, Teletrac Navman and PTV Group will help them lower costs while providing top customer service.”
