Toll Calculation API by PTV xServer

Why calculate tolls in advance?

  • Since toll roads and tunnels have become common, their expenses have constituted a significant share of overall transport costs. By reducing tolls, transportation costs can be decreased considerably. Precise toll calculation is the first step. Factor in applicable toll charges in when planning truck routes, compare alternatives, avoid tolls, and make sure your trucks are always on the most economic route available.

  • Why calculate tolls with the Toll Calculation API by PTV xServer?

    The PTV Toll Calculation API is a software developer component, available as a cloud-based web service or on-premises solution. Due to its standardized interface, the component can be easily integrated into your existing software architecture where it determines applicable tolls when planning truck routes.

    Our database contains precise and up-to-date information on toll roads, and when increases are announced, they are updated in our database and calculated in future trips. Sometimes it may make sense to take a small detour to avoid toll roads, and the PTV Toll Calculation API balances time-savings of toll roads and cost-savings of detours, then suggest the optimum route for your needs.

Features
