Our HGV Route 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 web service.
The journey planner, operated by PIE Mapping and delivered by our website, provides freight operators and drivers a way to plan routes tailored to their vehicle size automatically avoiding commercial vehicle road restrictions.
Freddie, CEO of PIE Mapping, said “The take up of the journey planner so far has been fantastic with some really large organisations using the site including the Ministry of Defence, FedEx, Maersk and DHL.”
Daniel, MD of UK Haulier, added “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 of the journey planner has prompted the decision to create additional functionality that will be available in future updates.
