Truck Routing API

Commercial vehicles have specific transportation requirements. Often, using consumer routing services made for cars and other consumer vehicles is not the best solution.

Our sophisticated Bing Maps Truck Routing API calculates routes optimized for trucks and commercial vehicles, taking into consideration specific requirements for larger carriers. The routes include information such as route instructions, travel duration, and travel distance.

Avoiding low bridges, sharp turns, steep gradients, and following restrictions and permits for hazardous material, you can always ensure a safe and hassle-free ride with our fleet routing software.

Distance Matrix

Distance Matrix API

Looking to develop a solution for a traveling salesman or vehicle routing? The Bing Maps Distance Matrix API service assists in calculating travel time and distances in many-to-many scenarios with an optional travel-time histogram. The Distance Matrix API for fleet management services can help answer questions as varied as where a commercial bakery should open its next location to optimize daily deliveries or helping a school district select the most optimal pick-up locations for their fleet of school buses. Bing Maps API logistics solutions are all about helping you answer complex predictive modeling questions with ease.

Snap to Road API

GPS points are not always exact. So, we developed the Snap to Road API that converts the GPS points of your assets to a corresponding set of coordinates of the nearest roads. This feature is important when tracking assets, as GPS devices can lose their connection or encounter interference resulting in an incomplete or inaccurate collection of GPS points.

The API takes GPS point data, in the form of latitudes and longitudes, then yields a list of objects that form a route snapped to the roads on a map.

Microsoft Real Estate Planning

Microsoft Real Estate Planning uses Bing Maps to analyze commute

The real estate and facilities planning team at a regional Microsoft office used Bing Maps Distance Matrix API to perform a quick commute analysis. This helps determine the best location for collocating all of their operations from multiple offices in a metro area to one office location. As a result, the office was able to select a site area that reduced commute times for most of their employees.
