For Our Best Price
PC*MILER|HazMat generates point-to-point and
street-level routes, mileage and driving directions for
hauling hazardous materials and dangerous goods in the U.S.
and Canada. The government has mandated that shippers and
carriers implement security plans regarding hazmat
transportation. A major step in that process is to provide
drivers with routes and maps that ensure compliance with
these federal, state and local restrictions and route
designations. To ensure fleet and driver safety, PC*MILER|HazMat
identifies where drivers should legally be traveling for the
particular type of commodity they are hauling.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS

over 30 hazmat-specific road classes and routing categories,
for example: Alternate, Preferred, Designated, and
Prohibited. (See chart below for other examples.)
Generate routes based on six
hazmat-specific routing types: Corrosive, Explosives,
Flammable, General, Inhalants and Radioactives.
