TMW Systems and NAVTEQ sign map data and content licensing agreement

“We are excited to bring the benefits of this new relationship with NAVTEQ to TMW customers of our transportation management systems and our mobile communications applications,” said David Wangler, president and CEO of TMW Systems. “With access to world-class mapping capabilities and widely-accepted, truck-specific routing data, TMW now has a digital platform on which to build a new class of software tools. These geographically-aware applications can energize personnel and fleet productivity with new business insight.”

NAVTEQ map data is now onboard most in-vehicle navigation systems sold in North America and is an increasing component of location-based-services offered via the Internet. Wangler added that plans for integrating navigation with TMW’s popular D2Link hand-held mobile device application are also being considered.

Initial development plans call for the integration of NAVTEQ map data into TMW applications already enabled to work with mileage and routing data commonly used in the heavy-duty trucking industry. Customers of TMW operations software will continue to be able to operate with multiple legacy mileage data sources to satisfy existing contractual obligations regarding such items as driver pay or customer billing calculations. They will soon be able to add the benefit of NAVTEQ map data and content for efficient daily routing, OOR alerts, business analysis and fleet status displays.

“NAVTEQ is pleased to work with TMW Systems as they execute on their vision of improved productivity for the North American freight transportation industry,” said Roy Kolstad, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Americas, NAVTEQ.
