New tutorials for route optimization available

The first two tutorials for route optimization are available now.

Pickups and Deliveries shows how route planning can take place in the use case of e.g. CEP.

Depot based transports shows route planning in case of a central depot, where loading or unloading takes place. The goods are transported to the customer afterwards or picked up at the customer site.

Both is provided by the Routing optimization API of PTV Developer.

These two tutorials show how easy it is to implement this for your own route optimization app. Enjoy it!
