Latest version streamlines planning process, from territory building to scheduling to routing, for increased speed, accuracy, ease of use.
CLEVELAND, OH – December 12, 2016 — Trimble Transportation introduced the latest version of its Appian FinalMile DirectRoute® routing and scheduling solution, providing seamless, end-to-end planning capabilities and deep integration with extensive new mileage and mapping information. The new version (2016.3) streamlines each step in the planning process – from territory building to scheduling to routing – and offers optional access to historical traffic and travel time data.
Rather than require the user to toggle between multiple applications, DirectRoute provides a seamless workflow that saves time and enables users to optimize daily execution while offering access to real-time reporting and analytics. The solution now includes ALK PC*Miler® Version 30 maps and related information updated to include bridges and tunnels, border crossings, highway exits, truck stops, state weigh stations, CAT Scale weigh stations, all five-digit U.S. ZIP codes (as of 2016), U.S. Department of Defense military installations, highway junctions, commercial truck restrictions, and more.
Also now available is a powerful new integrated traffic data mileage and travel time calculator that leverages historical commercial travel time estimates and real-time traffic data to increase route-planning accuracy.
Other key enhancements are additional route selection options within the embedded optimization tool, new map display options, support for additional file types when exporting the Distance File, and the ability to reset route start times for a range of routes.
“We continue to introduce innovative features that help streamline the planning process,” said Brian Larwig, vice president and general manager, Trimble Transportation. “DirectRoute is helping fleets and 3PLs save time and money both in the office and on the road while dramatically improving customer service levels.”
