PC*MILER|Tolls

Calculate the true cost of a lane with toll fees incorporated into the overall route cost

What is PC*MILER|Tolls?

PC*MILER|Tolls calculates truck-specific toll costs based on a vehicle’s weight, axle count, trailer count, transaction type (cash or discount program), and time of day travel in the U.S. and Canada. It is driven by the same technology and map dataset as ALK's industry-standard PC*MILER routing, mileage and mapping software. When generating routes, truck-specific toll costs are added into a route’s overall calculation. Determine whether it's more cost-effective to take a toll route, or a non-toll route with a few additional miles, before routing a vehicle. Even small toll charges have a big impact on your bottom line!
