HERE Maps has been our partner for many years providing our customers a constantly expanding range of geographical information, as they have always been superior to Google’s mapping platform. With the recent adoption of HERE Maps by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), it is clear that they are the 'Best Practice' heavy vehicle mapping partner for the road freight industry.
Fleet Effect’s cloud based Argus Compliance and Productivity service now provides our customers with a detailed HML map which includes the following attributes:
Highlighted HML routes in red as an overlay (which can be switched on/off with one button)
Maximum vehicle length (m)
Maximum vehicle GCM (tonnes)
Maximum vehicle width (m)
Height restrictions are also included (m)
The new HERE Maps heavy vehicle attributes allows operations and staff to plan B-double delivery routes and also overlay vehicles (GPS current location) to identify if they are off route to ensure compliance.
With the backing of HERE Maps new owners, AUDI AG, BMW Group and Daimler AG, HERE Maps have clearly stated they will accelerate the deployment of real-time maps that can benefit customers, with many new capabilities expected to be released during the course of 2016…… so watch this space for some exciting updates.
