The Distance Matrix API for transport logistics and freight

Use an unlimited matrix size for your logistics application and streamline inter-city transportation using real-time traffic information

Solution
The Distance Matrix API for professional transportation logistics is created to solve complex mathematical problems, including the classic "traveling salesman", so that every truck or commercial vehicle can reach all planned destinations using the shortest routes and in the shortest possible times.
The Distance Matrix API helps find the most efficient routes by reordering stops and considering real-time traffic conditions and restrictions. It predicts the best departure time and calculates travel distance with the same accuracy as the Google API.
Main API features
You can find the optimum route for all planned destinations by building 25x25 matrixes and larger
Unlimited matrix size
Rely on real road maps, instead of straight lines from point A to point B
Optimum routes
The API considers all road conditions and restrictions that affect trucks
Real-time traffic
By determining the start time and considering traffic conditions, you can accurately predict delivery times
Predictive capabilities
Calculate distances for inter-city and international transportation, regardless of where your business is located
Worldwide coverage
Pay only for the monthly volume of elements you use. No credit card and prepayment needed
Flexible prices
