Professional truck-routing service: Access this service for long, wide, or heavy vehicles or those transporting hazardous materials. The service factors in speed and bridge restrictions, inclines and other road suitability parameters.

Location attractiveness: Determine a score for the attractiveness of a location, based on the number of amenities, proximity to public transport stops and other specified criteria.
