We just wrapped up our ninth ALK Transportation Technology Summit here in Princeton. Thanks to all of our attendees, sponsors and presenters. Here are some of the highlights from our unique industry event:
We’re very excited to announce the official release of our latest innovation, ALK Maps, a development tool used to create mapping and routing visualizations with our proven data sets and algorithms.
What is ALK Maps?
We created ALK Maps in response to feedback from our commercial customers who were trying to use conventional mapping toolkits but found the routing capabilities lacking what they needed to calculate and display accurate commercial routes.
More importantly, what can you do with it?
ALK Maps enables you to overlay and visualize your own geographic data and combine it with the industry-standard commercial mapping and routing ALK has built over the last 30 years. Even though our desktop and mobile solutions are continuously being improved, many of our customers find value in integrating their own proprietary data and workflows with ALK’s solutions.
I have spent the past year creating ALK Maps with our Server and Web Applications Team and we couldn’t be happier to present ALK Maps to all of you officially. Over the last few months a number of our customers have been beta testing the product and we’re thrilled to hear they can’t wait to get their hands on the finished product. Our work, of course, is never done and we are planning to continuously evolve and improve ALK Maps to ensure it is the best it can be.

Thanksgiving has arrived and here at ALK we have much to be thankful for. Our talented team has been working very hard on our products and this year, we’ve successfully launched new versions of our truck routing software PC*MILER as well as our new customized mapping platform, ALK Maps; additionally, our free app, CoPilot GPS, was downloaded over 2 million times.
Our employees also collected enough food to fill six Thanksgiving baskets for the charitable organization, HomeFront. This year, HomeFront plans to help over 2,000 families celebrate Thanksgiving, including those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
ALK wants to make sure you get to your thanksgiving dinner before the turkey is carved! Use CoPilot’s ActiveTraffic™ to find the most efficient route and get to the table quicker. Haven’t downloaded CoPilot yet? Thankfully we have our Thanksgiving travel sale going on now! Get the details here.
