Assign drivers to tasks

To build your own tracking app, start with our Geocoding API to transform delivery addresses into latitude and longitude points. Next use Turf.js to assign the oldest outstanding order to the nearest available courier. Once the courier accepts a task, use the Directions API to generate a route specifically for the courier’s mode of transportation.

Distance API

In logistics, one driver often needs to deliver packages to several locations with minimal travel time. Our Distance API calculates travel times between multiple points with a single API request.

The Distance API is designed specifically for building a distance table or matrix, enabling optimal dispatching within seconds. It works worldwide and is available for the driving, cycling, and walking routing profiles.

Match GPS traces to a map

Use the Map Matching API to snap recorded traces – e.g. from your phone while driving a car – to a network of roads and paths.

With Map Matching you can align noisy traces to Mapbox Streets and be assured that you have the correct waypoints for routing requests.

Your custom mapping platform

Integrate maps into your mobile and web apps with our APIs. Build exactly what you need, from asset tracking to efficient routes to beautiful visualizations of your custom data.
