TomTom used for Michelin’s app for truck drivers
TomTom's software has been selected for the Michelin RoadConnect, the company's new navigation mobile app for truck drivers.
Michelin RoadConnect application users will be able to access TomTom’s online services and mapping data in order to identify suitable routes and provide estimated journey times.
Truck drivers can use the application to obtain information about selected route as well as important stops along the way.
TomTom Licensing Business managing director Anders Truelsen said: “Working with the transportation and logistics industry, TomTom is transforming mobility across the world.
“By maximising the value of our global map and online services, Michelin’s truck clients are better enabled to drive more efficient transportation routes.”
Using TomTom technology, Michelin RoadConnect will be able to deliver routing solutions in accordance with the needs of the oversized vehicle market.
Michelin RoadConnect project manager Xavier Gosselin said: “We found that TomTom could understand our requirements.
“Our key objectives were to provide the best routes for truckers and get a system that we could enhance with our ideas; we tested a number of systems and found the TomTom API to be a complete and adapted solution for mobile integration.”
With this new partnership, Michelin intends to offer a value-based transportation application, based on TomTom routing data.
