Press Release Summary: JOpt enables fleet operators to reduce overall carbon dioxide
emission !

Press Release Body: Since version 2.2.0 (codename GREEN) the JOpt Vehicle Routing
Optimizer comes with a built in emission assessment and optimization scheme that
allows fleet
operators to determine and optimize their overall carbon dioxide emission. Beside
calculation of the overall and per route emissions, JOpt determines an optimum
schedule with
optimum energy efficency in terms of trucks payload to empty ratio as well as
overall road mileage. Hence vehicles are automatically dispatched in a way that
leads to a minimum
carbon dioxide emission. Of course all other planning objectives like time windows,
load capacities, working times and so forth keep being satisfied as well.

\"Road transport generates about one fifth of the EU\'s CO2 emissions,
with passenger cars responsible for around 12%. Although there have been significant
improvements over recent years in vehicle technology - particularly in fuel
which translates into lower CO2 emissions - these have not been enough to neutralise
effect of increases in traffic and car size. While the EU-25 reduced overall emissions
of greenhouse gases by almost 5% between 1990 and 2004, CO2 emissions from road
transport rose by 26%\", European Commission (IP/07/155, Date: 07/02/2007)

\"Reading the figures, DNA sees the importance of reducing emissions for road
transport. Therefore
we are proud to deliver a core technology that easily enables assessment of C02
emission and energy efficiency and
delivers a reasonable foundation for setting up emission reduction strategies
alongside transportation networks and supply chains. With JOpt 2.2.0 (codename
fleet operators can make their contribute to a better climate while additionaly
saving cost and time throughout an optimum vehicle schedule that is automatically
caclulated by JOpt within minutes\", says Vincent Mayer, DNA
