PTV DPS has provided award winning software solutions for over 30 years. PTV DPS is an independent privately owned company based in modern offices in the United Kingdom. PTV DPS was founded in 1982 by Paul Palmer. Paul`s extensive international experience at both an operational and functional level within the FMCG transport sector allowed him to initially set up the business offering consultancy, particularly at contracts logistic level. Consultancy is still an important part of the business today, however as the business grew it highlighted the need for IT tools both for strategic and tactical purposes. At that time there were no suitable solutions available in the market, so DPS invested in the development of both route planning and scheduling systems. The software was then made available to the wider logistics market and branded as LogiX, now known as Route Optimiser.
