ALK Content Tools includes thousands of pre-defined ALK Places for Intermodal Terminals, Truck Stops and Distribution Centers. These Places are created and updated by ALK’s team of geographic information system (GIS) map data experts.  


ALK Places can be viewed in ALK Content Tools, but they cannot be edited. They can be used in route planning and navigation in the same ways as custom Places that you create. (Learn more about using Places in PC*MILER and CoPilot Fleetportal).
