Companies rely on accurate truck miles to quote transportation costs correctly. With PC*MILER's mileage information displayed when a new load appears, companies can rate a shipment and quickly finalize new business transactions, expediting and consolidating multiple processes. Member companies also have access to full routing details and state mileage breakouts within their 3sixty Freight Match program. The information allows customers to provide accurate routing to their drivers while the state breakouts provide an easy-to-use tool for determining mileages driven in each state and calculating fuel taxes more effectively. Close to 5,000 Canadian-based companies rely on the Canadian version of 3sixty Freight Match service to post their available freight and reduce empty miles. Collectively, these companies make close to 2 million requests daily within the freight-matching database.
PC*MILER is the transportation and logistics industry's leading routing, mileage and mapping software solution with more than 22,000 companies using ALK's PC*MILER, including ninety of the Top 100 motor carriers, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the General Services Administration (GSA), and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
