PASS MAPS for truck route planning online

Web-based planning and optimization tool – the lightweight for your tours

Are you looking for visual support in truck route planning and want to leverage optimization potential? At the same time, however, you only have a small fleet and complex route planning systems seem too large and complicated for your needs? We have the solution: With the web-based software PASS MAPS you can perform your truck route planning online – without complex interface adaptation or training measures.

Powerful algorithms

The basis for PASS MAPS consists of our MAPSERVICES, which provide geo-information and optimization services for transport logistics. Almost all functions that we offer there as an API-based cloud service can also be used in PASS MAPS. We would be happy to inform you about the performance and functionality of our algorithms.

Productive use within 15 minutes

PASS MAPS has been developed and designed to enable quick and easy use in online truck route planning:

  • Minimalist data – to use PASS MAPS, there is no need for complex master data maintenance and configuration. All necessary data are entered directly into the interface, provided via Excel or are already preset in the best possible way.

  • Simple data exchange via Excel – the most used interface format in the business world are Excel files. PASS MAPS is based on this paradigm. Simply load your orders and your fleet into the tool via the interactive wizard and start optimizing.

  • All the way into the vehicle – finished plans can be sent all the way into the vehicle at the push of a button. Here we support a range of options and providers, entirely in line with the needs and requirements of our customers.

Application scenarios for PASS MAPS

Route calculation and optimization

Route calculation and optimization

Calculate travel times and routes between different destinations for trucks, cars or cargo bikes without detailed stop information and optimize stop sequences within a tour or across tours.

Professional tour planning

Professional tour planning

In addition to driving time and route optimization, shipment-relevant aspects such as idle times, capacities, and restrictions are included in the optimization, thus creating realistic delivery plans. Send your planning to the vehicle at the push of a button.

Area planning and visualization

Area planning and visualization

Analyze the location, distribution and assignment of addresses and delivery areas with or without assignment to depots. Get information on actual commute distances and area sizes or simply get a cartographic overview.

Visualize, calculate and optimize your car and truck routes by clicking on the map or by entering them in the browser. See your daily routes compactly at a glance incl. truck driving times, distance data (Distance Rules for Road Transport/EWS) with toll information and cost calculation. Use the predefined truck profile with passage restrictions and adjusted speeds and export your resulting truck route planning as an Excel spreadsheet.

  • Automatic address completion and correction during input (geocoding)
  • Determination of distance, travel time, toll distance, CO2 emission and transport costs
  • Use of fastest, shortest or most cost-optimal route as basis for optimization
  • Calculation of route planning with truck-specific parameters
  • Display of multiple tours at the same time
  • Truck route optimization at the push of a button
  • Direct call by entering the URL possible, e.g. from Excel

MAPSERVICES: Routen- und Tourenberechnung

See on the map where your customers are distributed or how your sales territories are located. Have key figures calculated for your customer distribution and display the allocation directly on the map, either by entering them in the web app or the URL, e.g. via Excel functions.

  • Visualization of areas and addresses in different colorings
  • Calculation of metrics based on reference points such as branch office or warehouse addresses
  • Determination of regions by merging existing territorial structures such as postal codes or administrative areas (e.g. cities, counties, etc.)
  • Quick export as Excel spreadsheet
  • Creation of individual areas by drawing on the map

MAPSERVICES: Standort- und Gebietsvalidierung

A complete tour planning software and tour optimization like e.g. PLANTOUR offers you more functionalities than you need. Standard settings are enough for you? You only want to plan sporadically or have only a small fleet? Use PASS MAPS for truck route optimization in just three steps:

  1. Upload order data via Excel file and have it automatically located
