We Answer Your Questions with ProfiTOUR

  • How will my transport costs change if I take on a new customer?
  • How much can I save if I only supply my B and C customers once a week?
  • How will my transport costs change if I use a new regional warehouse?
  • I have a historically grown tour structure; could I save money by planning something completely new?
  • Changing scheduling windows for a large number of customers is extremely complicated; how do I know if it’s worth it?

Method

Send us the scheduling data for one or more selected delivery days, and we’ll simulate your routes and optimize your transports on the basis of the data you provide. The Initial results will provide you with improved control and flexibility within your transport workflows.

  • Data acquisition
    You send us data about your transports for a specific period of time.

  • Information
    In a joint conference call, we learn about your current transport situation.

  • Parameterization
    We process the data and create an initial plan. If possible, we re-create your IST tours.

  • Control
    Using graphical displays and a tour list (including start and end times, kilometers driven, and total quantities), you can determine whether the planning scenarios reflect your business’ day-to-day realities.

  • Optimization
    Based on the parameterization carried out above, ProfiTOUR optimizes your route plan.

  • Judgement
    Once again, you have the opportunity to adjust the results as needed.

  • Results Display
    In order to make the planning results accessible, we create tour lists and stop lists in the form of ASCII files or Excel overviews in addition to graphical visualizations.
