The PTV Group based in Karlsruhe, Germany, celebrates its 40th anniversary. The company has been developing intelligent software solutions for transport and logistics for four decades, ensuring that people and goods arrive safely and on time worldwide. More than 30-million routes per day are optimised with the company’s software, and more than 2500 cities around the world rely on the company’s solutions. Porsche Automobil Holding has acquired PTV in 2017. The company provides tools which enables users to provide mobility concepts and solutions. For example, in Australia, PTV software is the heart of Sydney’s new traffic management system. And in Europe, PTV technology is used for the development of the European transport model, which encompasses all passenger transport and freight movements across Europe. Together with the City of Karlsruhe and its Mayor Dr. Frank Mentrup, the company is working on further advancing Karlsruhe’s visibility as a model region for mobility. PTV Group also recently appointed a new management team: On 1 September 2019 Klaus Peter Lechner will start as chief financial officer, while Dr. Peter Overmann already commenced as chief technology officer and interim CEO. After serving PTV for 30 years Vincent Kobesen stepped down as CEO at the end of July 2019.
