And another one! The EWS Road Distance API

Do you need generally accepted distances for tender management or invoice auditing? Then the new EWS Road Distance API could be something for you!

The EWS (“Entfernungswerk Strasse”) mainly consists of precalculated truck distances and is the de facto standard in the transport sector. You have quick and direct access to these distances via relations all over Europe.

Since many years we deliver the EWS data directly to our customers as on-premise solution. Now we also offer a cloud solution integrated as new API in our product PTV Developer!

Detailed information like concepts or the API specification is available in the PTV Developer API documentation. Maybe the best thing to start is exploring the code sample there!
