Route Intersection


Please see the Sites feature in our Places API if you are looking for predefined geofences around warehouses, distribution centers, and many other important trucking facilities in North America.

The Route Intersection API returns all of the geofences that the given route intersects with. You can additionally filter by Geofence SetId, Geofence SetName, Geofence SetTag, or Geofence Name to check if your route intersects with a specific fence or set of fences. The response will be an array of geofences that your route intersects with.
