Magellan Ingenierie has released version 4 of its TourSolver route optimization solution. The latest update provides increased capabilities, faster processing that will help end-users reduce logistical costs and operate more efficiently overall, the company said.

The version includes a new activity-based approach that can manage long site visits spanning several days.

Its updates route calculation engine allows the possibility to optimize routes over larger areas, covering North America.
