October 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
LAS VEGAS - ALK Technologies announced the availability of ALK Maps, a new development platform that provides commercial routing, geocoding and mapping visualization for transportation apps.
In addition to powerful and flexible interactive mapping capabilities, ALK Maps allows transportation companies to generate multiple commercial routes and geocode locations with only a few lines of code.
At the core of ALK Maps is the PC*Miler routing engine, a leading platform for commercial routing, mileage, and mapping.
The ALK Maps APIs can be used in web applications, mobile apps, or desktop products, offering complete flexibility in product offerings. The APIs are designed to get transportation and logistics companies up and running quickly and with less overhead.
"We have just completed a three-month ALK Maps Beta program and have seen strong initial interest from partners and customers who are creating some very compelling integrations," said Michael Kornhauser, senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions at ALK.
"Just as truck drivers should not be using consumer GPS software; fleets, shippers, and logistics companies realize the safety value and benefits of using a truck-specific mapping solution."
