Planning and Logistics

Our vision

The Planning & Logistics department within ARS T&TT solves complex issues surrounding route planning and optimization. Especially efficiency and cost awareness play a big role within the sector; the competition is big, cooperation is sensitive, innovation is not automatically on the agenda and due to the globalization of the services cross-border distances (corridors) increase. So efficiency, but in combination with new technological possibilities, because they are already present in many forms. A competitive advantage is created using existing technology (think of: big data, floating car data, IoT technology) for the development of new applications (optimal routes, deployment of tailor-made means of transport, on-demand transport, load sharing, disclosure of information for the user via apps). Changing regulations (enforcement based on different regulations in different countries) and social trends surrounding road tax, safety and CO2 reduction have an effect.

Planning & Logistics focusses on concrete issues, such as more efficient waste processing (dynamic daily changing waste routes), smarter transportation of goods or persons (transportation on request instead of empty regular services or empty taxi’s), fleet management (car sharing) or the safe transport on allowed routes of exceptional transport. Planning & Logistics has delivered successful solutions in all these cases.

These solutions are based on the Lyncxx software platform developed by ARS T&TT. Lyncxx users gain more insights and significantly increase their efficiency, as a result lowering their operating costs. Besides the professional development and maintenance of applications, Planning & Logistics also provides the guidance of new applications within existing organisations through culture programs.
