Rand McNally Publishes 35th Edition of Atlas for Commercial Drivers


“Rand McNally today released the 2016 edition of its #1-selling trucker’s atlas, the Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas. The printed atlas, first published in the early 1980s during the period of trucking deregulation, has served over-the-road professional drivers for more than 30 years.

“The Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas continues to be the trusted reference and essential back-up for commercial drivers. Even in this day of electronic in-cab navigation, the large printed format is the best tool to see the big picture and quickly access state and province restrictions,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “We simplify drivers lives by cross referencing the atlas pages and content to the software on our award-winning IntelliRoute® TND™ truck-specific GPS devices and the new TND™ Tablet.”

“The newest edition includes:

  • Updated U.S. state and Canadian province maps;
  • Revised “designated” highways showing the latest truck roadways as specified by the Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA);
  • Updated restricted routes, low clearances, and weigh station locations;
  • A 22-page mileage directory with more than 40,000 truck-route-specific, city-to-city mileages;
  • A review of Hazardous Materials Regulations;
  • And fully updated state and province charts including more than 500 changes to truck-specific state contacts – such as operating authority contacts, emergency police, and vehicle registration. The section also includes road construction and conditions hotlines.”
