Tele Atlas, a global geographic content provider, recently announced at its Partner Conference Tele Atlas/Logistics, a truck routing database for the U.S. and Canada that includes vital trucking attributes such as road restrictions and bridge detail to help truckers plan safe and efficient routes. Tele Atlas/Logistics is the only digital mapping database to provide nationwide trucking attributes with detail down to the local street level. Targeted for the commercial vehicle telematics and fleet logistics industries, Tele Atlas/Logistics provides truck attributes for interstate highways and state roads for all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico, as well as local access road data. The Tele Atlas/Logistics database covers more than seven million miles of roads and identifies multiple categories of restrictions, including hazardous material regulations and truck-preferred/truck-restricted routes.
As previously announced, QUALCOMM, the industry’s global leader in providing high-value wireless data solutions, will deploy Tele Atlas/Logistics to enhance its line of platforms, applications and services offered to the transportation and logistics, and construction equipment industries. According to Tele Atlas, more than two million miles of roads have restrictions that impact large commercial vehicles. To help truckers plan the most efficient and safest route, Tele Atlas/Logistics provides detailed information on nine layers of hazardous materials, restriction detail and truck-preferred/truck-restricted routes for all classifications of roads and all vehicle types. Tele Atlas continually verifies its map data with its own staff and through alliances with routing professionals who help verify and update road data daily.
