    Promoting sustainable mobility with PTV

    PTV – Shaping smart, sustainable and safe transportation and mobility.

    PTV Group takes a holistic approach that integrates all aspects of traffic, transport and logistics to create and promote sustainable mobility. Recognised as global market leader, PTV develops intelligent software solutions for transport logistics, traffic planning and traffic management. Thus cities, companies and people save time and money, enhance road safety and minimise the impact on the environment. Based on its unique expertise in every facet of mobility, PTV ensures that people and goods arrive at their destinations safe and sound, and on time.

    May it be in traffic, deliveries or movement of people: Looking one step ahead is the core principle of PTV’s solutions. With software that gives concrete forecasts and calculates exact scenarios and business solutions. And with employees who are involved in national and international research projects in order to develop concepts, strategies and models for sustainable mobility with interdisciplinary teams.

    More than 2,500 cities deploy PTV products. Trips and routes for over one million vehicles are planned with our software. Even with a small fleet our route optimisation tools result in 7% – 15% savings. Our powerful simulation tools also allow manufacturers and fleet operators to test new technologies and trends in a virtual environment. The European transport model, which encompasses all passenger transport and freight movements in Europe, is developed using PTV software.

    Currently, we have approximately 900 employees worldwide crafting powerful and innovative solutions. PTV’s headquarters, located in the heart of the Karlsruhe technology region, house the company’s centre of development and innovation. From here, PTV plans and optimises everything that moves people and goods worldwide – it’s the central idea which has accompanied the Group since its foundation in 1979.
