The Source of Insightful Mapping

Testimonials

Kate Blucher

Senior Transport Planner

London Borough of Hackney

“Working with PIE over the last 3 years to develop Hackney's Online Freight Map has been a very valuable experience. We could not ask for anymore commitment from PIE as the time and dedication they have spent to get the map up to the current level far exceeds expectations. 

All requests and changes to the map have always been completed promptly and within appropriate timescales to ensure the map is as accurate as possible. We are looking forward to working with PIE in the future to progress the map to more advanced levels.”

Rob Kidd

Transport and Parking Manager

London Councils

“We have a close working relationship with PIE and have been impressed with the way in which they have made a rather complicated piece of legislation very accessible to the freight community – their input into the London Lorry Control Scheme online mapping service has been invaluable.”

 


 

Kingsley Hampton

Senior Transport Planner, Department of Neighbourhood and Planning

Wiltshire Council

“Freight Gateway brings all the key information for road hauliers and members of the public into one easily accessible place. It’s very user friendly and we’ve been delighted with the service we’ve received from PIE. In these times of limited resources for local councils a system like Freight Gateway is an extremely cost effective way to influence freight movements in a locality.”


 

Josephine Allman

Head of Passenger and Accessible Transport Services

Camden Council

“Smarter Travel Gateway is an innovative and flexible product which pulls together diverse travel and local information into one easily accessible place for everyone. It’s easy to use and particularly helpful for older and disabled people by providing all the information they need whether they live in the area or are visiting Camden.  PIE provides a reliable and technically competent service and Smarter Gateway is good value for money.”


 

Nick Davies

Principle Transport Officer

Barking & Dagenham Council

“The Smarter Travel Gateway technology we’ve procured from PIE has been a good investment for the council as part of our ongoing efforts to promote smarter travel within the borough – especially more walking, cycling and use of public transport. It’s been particularly useful to be able to provide walkers and cyclists with journey times in minutes. PIE have been a great partner to work with; this is an excellent product which is helping us reduce congestion, cut carbon emissions and promote healthier lifestyles.”


 

Duncan Sweetland

Website project manager

Society of London Theatre

“The Society of London Theatre was looking for a partner to create a bespoke, flexible mapping solution which would showcase all our venues in central London for the benefit of tourists and Londoner’s alike. PIE’s Smart Travel Gateway product ticked all the boxes for us and is doing everything we hoped it would. It’s a very strong mapping solution and we could not be happier.”

 

David Cranley

of Viridian Partnership, a digital agency behind a website and routing solution for the British Association of Removers

Viridian Partnership

“PIE worked with us to create an interactive mapping and routing solution which helps removal firms to work out the cost and best route for any job in the UK.

“Previously we were using Google Maps which worked out routes as the crow flies rather than using the road network. This caused a number of problems, however the PIE solution is far more accurate as it follows the road network. It does what it’s supposed to do very effectively, is delivering real benefits to BAR members and is helping them provide a better service to their customers. 

“This is just the start, and there are other more sophisticated elements of PIE’s routing data and expertise which we hope to tap into the future.”

 

Gordon Telling

Head of Urban Logistics Policy

Freight Transport Association

“The Freight Transport Association has worked with PIE on a number of projects in recent years and they have always provided us with a top quality service. Whenever we’ve asked them to provide us with a mapping solution they’ve delivered exactly what we asked for quickly and at the right price. PIE’s Freight Gateway product provides the comprehensive mapping solution which freight drivers need to establish the most appropriate route for their journey. It allows drivers to avoid roads with technical and environmental weight limits and helps them avoid inappropriate roads – which is good for the industry and the public.”
