Using PC*MILER 36

If you are a legacy Standard subscriber, PC*MILER 36 map data and routing software are used for all calculations. (Standard is no longer available for new subscribers.)

If you are a Premium subscriber, PC*MILER Web defaults to Current data. Current always has the most up-to-date road maps and routing software, making it ideal for route planning.  The standardized “numbered” annual version releases are mostly used by shippers and carriers when generating distances for freight rating and billing. It helps ensure they are generating the same PC*MILER distances for the same trucking lanes, and that distances match those returned by our installed “on premise” versions of PC*MILER.

If you are using PC*MILER to calculate distances for rating, you can select any version—from PC*MILER 18 to PC*MILER 36—in the Reporting Preferences tab of the Route Options.
