The new service is available on the web through anyInternet-connected computer, in the office, at home, or on the road, the company said.

PC*MILER|Web replaces ALK's previous web service, eMILER.com, with upgrades that include street-level and hazardous materials routing and routes for an unlimited number of stops. The new service also offers additional reports and mapping functionality. Since it is hosted on the Internet through a tier-one data center, regular updates are available to all users as they are made at no additional cost.

Pricing for PC*MILER|Web is based on a monthly subscriptionrather than eMILER's per-route charges. The company is offering three subscription packages, with varying levels of access to PC*MILER's proprietary North American truck-specific database. ALK is currently offering a free trial of PC*MILER|Web which allows 48 hours of access, obtainable via its website www.pcmiler.com/web.
