Mulmer Services strives to be an innovator and leader in our field. We accomplish this by leveraging available technologies to both optimize fleet performance and deliver a better customer experience. For example, all of our vehicles are equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) devises that allow us to relay critical information – such an engine codes and exact vehicle location – each and every minute that our vehicles are in service.
The benefits of GPS systems are numerous. Our unique GPS and mapping software allows us to monitor the location, speed, start/stop times, and harsh acceleration or braking. This system also allows us to monitor traffic congestion on major roadways so that we can reroute our vehicle in the event of an accident, road closure, or heavy traffic.
In our daily operations, we also draw on a number of public mapping tools that may alert us to upcoming construction or special events. One of our favourite tools is the Road Restrictions Map maintained by the City of Toronto. The interactive map is updated several times daily and can be found on the city’s website. The tool maps ongoing construction projects based on expected impact to local traffic. It also provides a detailed look at the long-term timeframe of each project, as well as the number of hours a roadway may be blocked by the construction crew.
We often hear the joke that there are only two seasons in Toronto: winter and construction. At Mulmer Services, we do our best to mitigate the impact of construction on our daily services by persistently monitoring public maps as well as our internal GPS software. We challenge you to use the map to find the clearest route home today!
