Free truck routing service hits milestone

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. The journey planner, operated by PIE Mapping and delivered via the ‘UK Haulier’ website, provides freight operators and drivers a way to plan routes tailored to their vehicle size, automatically avoiding commercial vehicle road restrictions. Since 2004, PIE has been collating and processing road network data specific to commercial vehicle movements in London and across the UK, collecting data from more than 470 local authority organisations. The company has also collaborated with Transport for London (TfL) to create the Freight Journey Planner, a freight mapping site used by commercial vehicle operators to route efficiently and compliantly around the capital, which was used effectively during the 2012 Games, incorporating real-time traffic integration within routing.

The positive feedback and success of the journey planner has prompted the decision by PIE to create additional functionality that will be available in future updates to the system.Freddie Talberg, CEO of PIE Mapping, said, “The take up of the journey planner so far has been fantastic, with some really large organizations using the site, including the Ministry of Defence, FedEx, Maersk and DHL.” Daniel Haden-Scott, 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.”
