PTV Group opens Japanese subsidiary

The PTV Group, whose guiding principle is to plan and optimise everything which moves people and goods worldwide, is continuing with its expansion strategy in foreign markets. It has now opened a new branch office in Japan. Based in Tokyo, the newly established PTV Japan Ltd offers transport and logistics software and real-time optimization systems and services. Together with its present offices in Australia, Singapore and China and its new subsidiary in Japan, the company is continuing to expand its market activities in the Asia-Pacific region. Japan has a strong economy that requires a well-functioning transport infrastructure. Therefore, it has invested heavily in telematics, transport modelling and climate protection. Even though public transport is the most important mode of transport in major cities, Japan’s motorization rate is higher than Germany’s.

Based in Karlsruhe, Germany, the PTV Group provides software and consulting services for traffic, transport logistics and geomarketing. Kozo Keikaku Engineering Inc (KKE), a globally-operating multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, is one of PTV’s major distribution partners in Japan, and both companies want to strengthen their cooperation in the transport sector. One of the many exciting future projects might include the preparation of the 2020 Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo. “We want to strengthen our position in Japan through our new Support & Licence Centre in Tokyo,” said Vincent Kobesen, CEO of PTV. “Yoshihiko Hashino, a long-standing partner of the PTV Group, is the new sales manager. He will be in charge of the local business operations.” Hashino commented, “In Japan, where public transport is extremely developed due to the scarcity of land and population density, PTV’s Vissim and Viswalk software systems are the leading tools for traffic and pedestrian simulation, and are used for projects connected to public transport. This includes design and planning of train and metro stations, both inside and outside, and airports.”
