Rand McNally is launching a new version of its IntelliRoute with MileMaker software this week at the Truckload Carriers Association Annual Convention in Las Vegas.
The new version of the program will feature several functional changes that will help companies plan routes more efficiently, Rand McNally announced. It will allow users to create multiple routes on a single screen to more clearly see routes, maps and overviews, and it also provides enhanced toll data that includes transponder discount rates.
“This new Enhanced IntelliRoute with MileMaker is a giant step forward, providing additional tools and flexibility for carriers, shippers, and third party logistics providers,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “Users will be able to quickly run multiple queries in just a few steps. From there, they’ll be able to visualize routes like never before with the new high resolution maps.”
Features in the new version include:
•Higher resolution mapping
•New user interface
•Abilities to create and visualize multiple truck routes and route types on a single map
•Toll cost data with transponder options
•Enhanced route optimization tools
•Ongoing road construction updates
•Class-based hazardous materials routing
