ProMiles Software Development Corp. recently released the latest version of its flagship ProMiles mileage guide, labeled the Kingpin Edition for its inclusion of more vehicle configuration settings than any other mileage guide, the company says.
The Kingpin Edition combines ProMiles’ 15 years of experience in trucks along with Tele Atlas’ digital maps, including “last-mile” and “logistics-specific” routing attributes, to better enable high-quality and safe truck navigation on local road networks in the continental United States and Canada for virtually all commonly used vehicle configurations.
ProMiles says Kingpin features door-to-door routing and enhanced road attributes, leveraging digital map data and content from the Tele Atlas/Logistics database, which covers 7.5 million miles of road in North America. Kingpin has 187 different types of truck routing attributes covering 12 different vehicle types and a total of more than 26 million truck routing attributes applied to the digital map data.
According to the company, Kingpin has the ability to route vehicle configurations ranging from a van doing courier work and other local delivery trucks, to dump truck and ready-mix trucks, to the peddle runs on short trailers, to the Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs) running on the toll roads and rural highways in the West including triples, Rocky Mountain doubles, turnpike doubles, and B and C-trains. Kingpin is the first mileage guide ever to fully cover all trailer kingpin regulations in North America, ProMiles says.
“The release of Kingpin marks the culmination of a long, thorough process and significant resource investments that ProMiles has made to migrate the truck attributes collected over the years to the new product database,” says Chris Lee, marketing director of ProMiles. “By leveraging the Tele Atlas digital map data, and Tele Atlas’ vast in-field collection capabilities, we believe this product will provide the industry with a new level of logistics routing capabilities.”
“ProMiles continues to demonstrate its commitment to delivering strong offerings for the fleet industry,” says Dana Fenner, director of fleet and logistics for Tele Atlas. “We’re pleased to continue working with ProMiles to deliver an industry solution that helps ensure their customers’ drivers can effectively and easily route to their end destination.”
