Industry Standard Truck Routing Runs on NAVTEQ Map Data
NAVTEQ TRANSPORT, in conjunction with NAVTEQ(R) map data, provides road attributes that directly affect truck routing. These attributes include legal restrictions, physical restrictions and preferred truck routes. As an example, the detailed data included in NAVTEQ TRANSPORT allows fleet operations to route trucks away from low-clearance areas and streets in which trucks cannot maneuver, helping to reduce incidents and minimize out-of-route miles. Furthermore, by matching routes to road-network reality, NAVTEQ TRANSPORT enables the development of applications that support more accurate route calculations.
"Maptuit's routing capabilities have been demonstrated repeatedly through rigorous tests and trials, with customers ultimately selecting Maptuit as the best solution for their companies. One of our routing solution strengths relies on accurate and reliable digital map data, which we obtain from NAVTEQ. We sought to collaborate with NAVTEQ because of its best-in-class approach to our solutions," said Jeff Papows, Ph.D, President and CEO, Maptuit.
"NAVTEQ is extremely excited to be associated with the best navigation product commercially available for large Class 6-8 trucks," said Roy Kolstad, Vice President and General Manager -- Enterprise, NAVTEQ. "The combination of NAVTEQ's fresh map data and Maptuit's innovative, robust routing application is a tremendous win for commercial fleets."
NAVTEQ is showcasing its NAVTEQ TRANSPORT dataset at the NPTC 2007 Education Management Conference and Exhibition in Indianapolis, booth #511, at the Indiana Convention Center from April 29 through May 1, 2007. Maptuit NaviGo will also be demonstrated within the booth.
