ALK Technologies has partnered with IDSC (Integrated Decision Support Corp) to provide over-the-road fuel purchase optimization directly through its PC*MILER routing and mileage software.
IDSC provides planning and execution systems, including fuel optimization, specifically for truckload carriers. PC*MILER is a transportation industry standard for routing and mileage calculation by motor carriers, shippers, and logistics providers throughout North America.
The IDSC partnership will enable PC*MILER users to incorporate the most cost-effective over-the-road fuel purchases into driving directions without exiting the application. PC*MILER users will be able to simply access IDSC's extensive fuel-pricing database to generate the most efficient route with detailed fuel buying instructions along the way.
Some PC*MILER customers subscribe separately to IDSC's Fuel Advice web-based service to access the same optimized data. The new partnership enables ALK customers to save a step in the routing process and access IDSC optimization directly through PC*MILER. Similarly, payment can be made directly through ALK as well.
