Difference between common vehicle and truck fleet journeys

 

Truck and commercial freight vehicle journeys are incredibly complex in comparison to those of common vehicles.
Be it short-haul trucks delivering goods within a given region or long-haul trucks traversing highways and crossing borders, there are numerous business-critical variables that directly impact trucking operations and eventual business outcomes.

Common Vehicle Journeys

  • Journeys are typically short, with only a few extending to longer distances
  • Simple, linear journeys with fewer destinations and mid-journey stops
  • Mostly travel on regular roads with few route restrictions and known performance characteristics
  • Since journeys are short and mostly within well-known areas, exposure to risk is minimal
  • Regular vehicles do not have to adhere to strict schedules and regulatory restrictions

Truck Fleet Journeys

  • Truck journeys are typically longer and more complex, covering thousands of kilometers crossing borders
  • Involve multiple stops that need ordering and reordering, e.g. unloading points, fuel stations, etc
  • Truck routes have to comply with regulatory restrictions, and need to be optimized for vehicle type, fuel and time
  • Higher risk to driver, vehicle and goods places emphasis on safety, including vehicle wear and tear
  • Trucks must adhere to specific routes, departure times and other vehicle-specific parameters

NextBillion.ai’s Distance Matrix API for Trucking

Truck routing is an intricate operation that must account for a multitude of nuances that affect trip time, safety and operational costs. Truck height, weight, load, number of stops, fuel consumption are just a few of the many data points that should be integrated when evaluating truck ETAs and routes.

Available off-the-shelf APIs are not equipped to account for these trucking-specific requirements and deliver only suboptimal ETAs and routes. This directly impacts turnaround times and jeopardizes truck fleet operations.

NextBillion.ai’s Distance Matrix API focuses on solving for reliable trucking-specific ETAs. We help trucking companies customize their ETAs based on truck type (16-, 8- or 4-wheeler), weight, route preferences, no. of stops, regulatory requirements and all other related nuances. Our advanced ML algorithms combine first-party data, second-party data and live traffic to give the fastest truck-optimized route with highly accurate ETA and distance predictions.
