About PTV Distribution Planning Software Ltd

PTV Distribution Planning Software Ltd is a worldwide company with its Head Office in central England, offering a wide range of specialised logistics support services including logistics consultancy, route scheduling software and in-cab control and monitoring systems.

The company was started in 1982 by its current chairman, Paul Palmer, as a logistics consulting business based on many years of experience both at an operational and functional level within the FMCG Transport sector.

The growth of the consulting business in the UK, particularly at a Contract Logistics level, highlighted the need for IT tools at both a strategic and tactical level. Having researched the market and not finding the tools the market needed, PTV DPS invested in the development of both vehicle route scheduling and planning software, initially to meet its consulting customers' needs but eventually to a wider logistics market.

In 1991, PTV DPS began an expansion plan outside the UK with its first sales in the Benelux countries and Scandinavia. By 1993 there was further growth into France and Australia.

PTV DPS is now a world player with additional offices in South Africa, Germany and South Asia.

PTV DPS now has over 70 staff directly employed, plus an additional 20-30 people indirectly employed by partners.

The company now operates in four key areas:-

  • Logistics consulting
  • Supply of professional vehicle route scheduling and optimisation software
  • Supply of route planning and time & distance technology software
  • Systems integration and bespoke solutions - with Electronic Resource Planning (ERP) systems, in-cab monitoring and warehouse management.

The company is now a world leader in providing IT Solutions to the Logistics sector with an infrastructure of PTV DPS offices spread out over the globe plus a network of Business Partners.
