Can Route4Me create routes for large trucks that have weight, height, axle, hazardous materials, and other restrictions?
When you use Route4Me to automatically plan your optimized routes for you, we consider two restrictions simultaneously, so that your commercial vehicles only travel on pre-approved roads, and so that each vehicle’s weight and cubic volume capacity is not exceeded.
There are two types of restrictions that are important to consider when planning routes for vehicles that have special attributes.
First, there is the road network that the vehicles are allowed to travel on. This means that the vehicle’s unique height, weight, axle count, the presence of hazardous materials, and other restrictions force it to travel on pre-approved roads in order to prevent a dangerous accident or to comply with transportation laws. Route4Me has a database of Class A truck route approved roads and will provide a turn-by-turn list of vehicle-specific directions.
The second thing to consider is that all vehicles in your fleet have certain maximum limitations that are unique to that specific vehicle.
As an example, a box truck can only transport 10 pallets, and the weight of these pallets must not exceed 10 tons. Therefore, when a route is planned for your fleet of box trucks, our system will not produce a route that will exceed the maximum pallet count or the maximum weight for the box truck.
