Matrix Routing API Calculate distances and travel times between multiple locations quickly and accurately.
Incredibly Fast

Calculate huge distance matrices within seconds.

Consider side of street

Get accurate results for different predefined vehicle configurations. The calculation then automatically respects all the road limitations according to your vehicle configuration.

Basis for route optimization

Whether you calculate your routes and tariffs with a route planning software, your own planning algorithms or directly with the matrix values, the Distance Matrix API is your tool of choice.

High performance routing

Don’t waste your time waiting: The calculation of a distance matrix for 20x20 waypoints takes 4 seconds and a matrix with 200x200 waypoints only 6 seconds. Compare that to the 39 minutes it would take with a conventional process, and you'll never want to use another matrix again.

Predefinable profiles and settings

Consider the side of street individually for each start and destination location. In our API, you can specify for each location whether you want to depart or arrive in the direction of travel, for example to avoid dangerous delivery situations or road crossings.

Exact Cost Calculation

Distance Matrix API considers the costs of tolls, drivers and vehicles. This makes it the ideal basis for the accurate calculation of transport costs and offers. It also considers the fact that outward and return might differ due to geography and infrastructure and therefore provides values for both directions.

Synchronous and asynchronous requests

No more time-outs: Instead of terminating a request, the API continues calculating in the background and automatically informs you when the request is completed. Synchronous requests support up to 1,000 locations.
