By choosing TomTom as its location data partner, Simacan gets access to continuously updated map data and a traffic database covering the complete road network in Europe. This traffic data includes both live and historic information on traffic incidents, delays, travel times and road speeds.
Simacan has integrated TomTom’s data and connected services with its proprietary routing and ETA algorithms, adapting the technology to fit its preferences and needs. Rich location information allows Simacan’s users to calculate precise and predictive routes and ETAs for deliveries. Incorporating live traffic data also makes it easy to manage last-minute changes, guiding drivers around disruptions and delays and updating ETAs on the fly to keep customers informed about their orders’ progress.
Simacan continues to add new capabilities to its logistics platform to provide users with an even better experience. The company is constantly working to improve ETA calculations in different geographies, including mountain regions. It is also moving forward with a pre-process functionality for improved transport planning, which incorporates pre-calculated content, such as time-distance calculations, to help teams look ahead and optimize future deliveries.
