Urbantz is moving its mapping services to HERE Maps
While most people are quarantined at home, delivery services are more active than ever circling around the cities to bring products and parcels to everyone on time. We believe that at this moment it's especially important to support delivery businesses with the most reliable technology. That’s why the partnership between Urbantz and HERE Maps arrived right on time.
Urbantz develops a data-driven SaaS solution to allow retailers and delivery service operators to easily manage and monitor the whole delivery chain from the initial order to the final recipient. Advanced geocoding and location data service is an essential part of this process, which allows drivers to use the most relevant data, avoid traffic jams or low emission zones. Working with the award-winning solution from HERE Maps furthers that.
One of the major additions with HERE Maps is that it will support truck navigation. This option includes more vehicle types, from small to big trucks. This is an improvement in the day-to-day work that HERE Maps offers in comparison with other similar providers. In the future, drivers will also experience turn-by-turn navigation directly in the mobile app, avoiding switching to out-of-the-app mapping services to use these navigation methods.
Urbantz’s strategy lies in leading the innovation in the last-mile technology sector, which is also reflected in partnering with market-leading solutions like HERE Maps. At the same time, we see our partnership with HERE as helping our customers in retail and logistics to achieve common goals of having more sustainable and cost-efficient home deliveries.
