TomTom Logistics Product Includes Additional Features, Truck Routes in U.S. and Canada
TomTom announced on July 23 the newest version of its Logistics map product designed specifically for truck and fleet operators. The TomTom Logistics product features include:
- Dimensional restrictions totaling more than 1.6 million miles in the U.S. and 225,000 miles in Canada.
- Designated truck routes for more than 400,000 miles in the U.S. and 60,000 miles in Canada.
- Operating bans on idling or jake brake usage totaling more than 180,000 miles in the U.S. and 80,000 miles in Canada.
- Critical last-mile content required to get a driver to the final destination.
The TomTom Logistics product appends to the standard map product and can be merged with other TomTom enhancement products to enable truck-relevant POI content as well as warnings for curves or steep grades. TomTom's product is enabled by the expertise of ProMiles, which has substantial knowledge of fleet operation and restrictions on trucks.
"TomTom Logistics enables a safer and more efficient operation of fleet vehicles and powers solutions that demand highly accurate and detailed content," says Eszter Pattantyus, VP of Maps. "By leveraging this precise data, TomTom can help operators of large vehicles avoid striking a low bridge or accruing a large fine for carrying an oversized load."
