ALK Technologies, a developer of truck-specific routing, mileage, and mapping software, announced the release of PC Miler Worldwide 24.1.

PC Miler Worldwide 24.1 generates routes, distances, maps, and driving directions over the entire international highway network. Regional coverage includes Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, North America and South America.

In select regions outside of North America, Navteq digital map data has been seamlessly integrated with ALK’s proprietary routing network. The database includes over 659,000 new miles of roads in Europe and over 13,000 new miles in South America. The increase in postal code coverage can be seen throughout most regions with over 392,000 new postal codes in Asia and over 37,500 new postal codes in South America, the company says.

“With this enhanced map data coverage, PC Miler Worldwide enables users to more accurately optimize, visualize and manage their global supply chains,” said Craig Fiander, vice president, marketing – PC Miler Solutions for ALK. “It provides transportation and logistics companies the most accurate transit times and distances for network optimization, freight payment, rating and carrier selection applications.”

PC Miler Worldwide 24.1 features comprehensive secondary road coverage throughout Western and Central Europe; updated 53-Foot/Twin Trailer routing and map data; and new truck restrictions throughout North America and Europe. The new truck restrictions throughout western and central Europe include height, length, width, and weight restrictions as well as through truck discouraged and truck prohibited designations, the company says.

New features and enhancements include Least Cost Routing which generates optimal routes based on custom fuel efficiency, time and operating cost settings. PC Miler Worldwide 24.1 also calculates estimated Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions per route. The newly enhanced Import Custom Places feature eliminates manual trip entry and now includes an export feature to audit saved locations.
