AKRON, Pa., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- layover.com, a leader in Internet information for the trucking industry, has launched a new service at http://layover.truckmiles.com, which provides truckers with online mapping and routing capabilities at no cost.
Professional truck drivers have specific needs when it comes to routing and trip planning. Roads with weight restrictions, border closings and toll roads are just a few of the things truckers need to consider when planning their route. layover.com chose TruckMiles by ProMiles® to power this new online service because no other Web site or service can meet these special needs.
"Implementing these mapping and routing tools was important to us," says Bruce Martin of layover.com. "Other online mapping sites such as Mapquest are very useful, but do not meet the needs of truck drivers. TruckMiles by ProMiles® does, which is the reason we have established this strategic partnership."
Currently, users are able to map their trip by city, state and zip code. Results can be printed as well as emailed, with future updates to the service allowing trips to be mapped using an exact address.
Owner Operator Dutch De Pre says, "I need specific tools in a routing program and now I can find these tools for free at layover.com. Other online mapping solutions cannot give me the information I need to be a successful driver. This service gives me an advantage."
"Everything in this industry revolves around truck mileage between two points," says Tony Stroncheck of ProMiles®. "By offering the largest and most accurate North American database in the industry, we have become the leader in Internet Truck Mileage and Routing."
