for use cases
Distance Matrix API computes travel times and distances between a set of origins and destinations — for one-to-many/many-to-many start and endpoints.
The API call returns a matrix of ETA and distances for each origin and destination pair.
*T = ETA in mins, D = Distance in kms
Distance Matrix API solves operations and routing challenges faced by logistics, shipping, delivery, fleet management, mobility and urban infrastructure companies by predicting accurate distances and arrival times.
Why NextBillion.ai Distance Matrix API
The existing plug-and-play APIs are not built for the modern enterprise’s needs.
They do not take take into account specific business needs the way NextBillion.ai does.
Customizable APIs mapped to your business
Computes accurate ETAs and Distances based on the vehicle type- trucks, minivans, cars, motorbikes or e-scooters - depending on business needs. Customizations also incorporates preferred routes, driving speed, traffic rules and regional nuances unlike the existing ready to use APIs
High volume at low cost
Route optimization demands the ability to call a very large number (eg: 500 origins, 500 destinations) of API calls at very low latencies. Besides the volume constraint, existing solutions come with a heavy price tag. With our Distance Matrix API, you can scale without worrying about price
