 Rand McNally Publishes 37th Edition of Atlas for Commercial Drivers

Rand McNally has released a new edition of its Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas, the #1-selling atlas for over-the-road commercial drivers. 

It features truck-navigable roads, trucking regulations, and low-clearances.

The new edition is available in several formats at travel centers, bookstores, and online.

According to Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally, “Even as many professional drivers adopt technology to help them do their jobs – such as with electronic logging – most continue to rely on the Motor Carrier’s Road Atlas as a quick reference and reliable back-up for navigation.”
The new 2018 edition includes thousands of updates to the maps as well as to guidelines and regulations pertinent to professional drivers.  Features include:

  • Revised and updated maps of U.S. states and Canadian provinces with an overview map of Mexico;
  • Updated highways showing the latest truck roadways as designated by the Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA), also known as designated highways;
  • Coverage of select Hazardous Materials Regulations;
  • A 22-page mileage directory with more than 40,000 truck-route specific, city-to-city mileage
  • Charts of state and provincial permit agency phone numbers and websites, low clearances, and weigh stations, as well as hotlines for road construction and conditions;
  • Toll system contact information for each state.

The atlas is available in paperback as well as in a spiral-bound, laminated Deluxe version. There also is an updated Large Scale edition with maps that are 37 percent larger.
