Smart Urban Freight Designer - Online!

05 October 2015

The Smart Urban Freight Designer, developed in Smartfusion by PTV, is an IT-based tool which simulates logistics scenarios in order to promote discussion between actors and present potential solutions for electro mobility.

The Smart Urban Freight Designer is a professional planning tool used to calculate and optimise inter-urban shipment and make comparisons between different scenarios, based on cost efficiency.

The in-built objectives modelled by the tool can be varied according to the target audience. E.g.:

  • optimising transport costs per km and per hour;
  • reaching a certain service level;
  • reducing air emissions;
  • reducing noise;
  • increasing safety.

Such tools can be very complex and often require professional training for the user. Especially for SME customers, or city authorities, simplicity of use is crucial.

Smartfusion has geared the solution design towards an easy to use tool, based on a simplified graphical user interface that will work for non-IT experts.

The tool can be used online at http://80.146.239.140:50000/samplebrowser/samples/tour-planning-electro-mobility/
