Smart travel: «Total trip management»

RouteRANK is a web-based travel planning software. Unlike other solutions, routeRank takes the entire route into consideration by combining various different means of transport such as travel by air, rail and road. Users can sort the results as they like, for example by price, traveling time or CO2 emissions, but even by possible productivity during the journey or the risk of missing a connection. The system enables travelers to significantly cut traveling time, reduce travel costs as well as their overall «carbon footprint». RouteRank promotes the switch from road and air travel to travel by rail and the use of public transport.


The jury in particular acknowledged that routeRANK transparently depicts the CO2 emissions produced by business travel. This makes it an interesting tool for companies.
