MILESTONE: 35,000 routes for journey planner
The UK’s first free-to-use online freight journey planner has hit a key milestone with more than 35,000 routes generated and 90,000 visitors to the site.
Operated by PIE Mapping and delivered via the UK Haulier site, the journey planner provides operators and drivers a way to plan routes tailored to their vehicle size.
It automatically avoids commercial vehicle road restrictions.
Users of the journey planner so far include the Ministry of Defence, FedEx, Maersk and DHL.
Daniel Haden-Scott, Managing Director of UK Haulier, said: “The number of people using the service highlights the demand for an easy to use, cloud-based route planner for commercial vehicles.”
The positive feedback and success has prompted the decision to create additional functionality that will be available in future updates.
