calculate distances in milliseconds
Route and vehicle planning, control, and deployment are our bread and butter in the logistics business
These involve the dynamic and, ideally, real-time calculation of a multitude of distances and travel times.
Let’s assume you currently use 20 vehicles to deliver 100 consignments. Several thousand distances and travel times between all locations therefore have to be determined in advance in order to present the dispatcher with all conceivable options.
In practice, however, companies may handle assignments that incorporate 1,000 deliveries over one or several days – essentially requiring a 1000 × 1000 matrix. That’s why we make it possible for you to solve such tasks in approximately ten seconds with Distance Matrix. Or to put it another way: with our service you can accurately calculate some 150,000 road distances and travel times per second!
Based on the results of a distance matrix, evaluations are carried out that take into account many different factors with respect to route costs or efficient itineraries. Countless mathematical methods and algorithms also use such a matrix as the calculation basis for solving the traveling salesperson (TSP) and other problems.
Take advantage of a service that calculates distances and travel times lightning fast and offers the prospect of complementary features such as optimizations. Out of the box!
Distance Matrix - benefits for your business
- Accurate distance and travel time calculation for many geographical problems
- Almost real-time calculation, no noticeable waiting times during use
- Basis for the design of all kinds of use cases (ETA calculation, geo-fences, and much more)
- Consideration of truck-specific attributes, transit restrictions, etc.
- Basis for further optimizations to routes, regions, and network structures
- High level of transparency through constant pre- and post-calculations and enhanced data density

Information for programmers
Simple integration thanks to our “API-first” principle.
addHelix services are based on state-of-the-art architecture and are delivered as a RESTful-JSON API. “What matters to us is that you can get up to speed quickly and benefit from simple implementation and good usability.”
Therefore, you can conveniently use the parser methods available in your programming language to easily process JSON objects.
And you enjoy the benefits of Swagger, the widely used application for API documentation.
