Rand McNally announced significant enhancements to its IntelliRoute Software integration with TMWSuite and TruckMate operations software, both from TMW Systems. In a move to bring more precise routing technology to its joint customers, this integration is intended to allow mutual customers to access the address-to-address calculations offered in the IntelliRoute Dock2Dock product.
Rand McNally’s IntelliRoute Dock2Dock software is designed to allow fleets to navigate on city and inter-neighborhood streets. The software provides nearly 7.0 million miles of U.S. truck-attributed roads made up of 24.3 million unique road segments. The routing takes trucks from the address of origin to the destination’s dock and boasts coverage across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
“Like our partner Rand McNally, we are constantly working to enhance our software to assist our customers in monitoring performance and profit,” says David Wangler, president and chief executive officer of TMW Systems.
IntelliRoute also routes by truck type across all of Rand McNally’s standard routing methodologies, including HHG, Practical and Lowest Cost. IntelliRoute Dock2Dock provides both physical restrictions, such as truck height and weight, and legal restrictions, such as turn limitations and truck-specific speed limits, to help minimize out-of-route miles and maximize fuel efficiency. It allows carriers to calculate a truck-routable distance between two precise physical addresses for a specific asset type.
IntelliRoute software recently was enhanced to include Mexican Postal Codes and the ability to optimize up to 10 addresses. “TMW’s integration with IntelliRoute Dock2Dock brings all of the time- and cost-saving benefits of our software to their users,” says Dave Muscatel, chief executive officer of Rand McNally. “Our Dock2Dock solution helps dispatchers equip their drivers to navigate more efficiently and reach their destinations on time, and give management an accurate picture of performance.”
