Maptuit Selects NAVTEQ TRANSPORT for Use in NaviGo
Maptuit chose NAVTEQ, a global provider of digital map data for location-based solutions and vehicle navigation, to supply NAVTEQ TRANSPORT truck attributes for its latest fleet navigation product, NaviGo. NaviGo features mapping and navigation; commercial-grade routing and re-routing; text-to-speech turn-by-turn directions; and a large moving map format as well as a truck-specific road network.
NAVTEQ TRANSPORT, in conjunction with NAVTEQ 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, president and CEO, Maptuit.
