By digitizing detailed geofences around the exact perimeter of a location and attaching key details and attributes - we're delivering location data that supports safety, enhances efficiency, and champions collaboration.
Millions commercial locations
Millions geofences and gate locations
Hundreds of thousands of entry and exit gates
At the recent FreightWaves F3: Future of Freight Festival, we presented on how location data and highly precise polygonal geofences that calculate dwell and detention times, can foster relationships between carriers and shippers. To show the connection, we demoed our Engage Lane solution, an agile transportation procurement platform. Watch the quick 7 minute video >
With accurate vehicle arrival and departure times, we can help carriers with contracts, service agreements, appointment windows, dispatch and detention fee collection, while fostering collaboration between carriers and shippers.
Use exact location-to-location routing to improve ETAs, generate true mileage and calculate precise costs, as well as precisely track assets with arrival/departure times based on polygonal geofences around locations.
Reduce delays and dangerous maneuvers when drivers are trying to find a location with turn-by-turn last mile navigation.
Provide access to a variety of details related to a location, including coordinates, address, contact, custom notes and more.
Generic Point Radius Polygon
The traditional approach to geofences: the vehicle triggers an inaccurate arrival notification long before it will arrive at the destination.
Trimble Maps Polygon
Our approach to geofences: the vehicle triggers an arrival notification when it actually arrives at the destination.
Using our Places API directly incorporates Places data into any application or Transportation Management System (TMS). The Places API enables you to access all of the data for a location in our database*, including:
A small part of a sample JSON for a Place.
