The Distance Matrix API for courier services

Use driving, walking, and bicycling modes to organize an efficient goods-delivery system


Using the Distance Matrix API, courier services can determine the best routes not only for drivers, but also for cycle couriers and couriers who deliver goods by foot. This allows courier companies to effectively use all their available resources.
Our API can also calculate distances and travel times while taking into account public transport for couriers who deliver goods on foot. Using this function, the courier service also can calculate the courier's time of departure and take into account when the client wishes the delivery to arrive.
