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
