PIE Mapping has launched the UKs first free online route planner for commercial vehicles. " The Freight Journey Planner allows commercial vehicle operators to plan routes, free of charge, tailored to vehicle size and weight. "
“Navigating Britain’s roads continues to get tougher for freight operators, with lots of restrictions governing vehicle movements,” said Freddie Talberg, CEO, PIE Mapping.
“We’ve been developing the Freight Journey Planner to directly address this issue and are delighted to launch this free service using high quality freight specific data from an array of sources, including directly from councils.
“We hope this helps operators and drivers to comply with the preferred routes and rules of local authority road networks.”
According to Talberg, the system will continue to evolve following its launch, by partnering with more local authorities to capture as much local data as possible.
“This local authority data will make the routing even more accurate and help the Freight Journey Planner to become a valuable day to day tool for freight operators throughout Britain.”
