CHICAGO — Rand McNally released on Wednesday the latest edition of its printed Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas.
Designed specifically for professional truck drivers, the Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas has offered resources for the commercial transportation community for more than 40 years. Each edition of the atlas includes updated state and national truck-accessible roadways, the latest state-by-state regulations, fuel tax charts, truck-restricted routes and more.
The new edition, which comes in paperback as well as a spiral-bound version with write-on/wipe-off laminated pages, is available at travel centers, in bookstores, on e-commerce sites and through Rand McNally’s online store. There is also a large-print version with maps that are 37% than in the standard versions.
