NAVTEQ and PEMEX Present the “Travel with PEMEX” Initiative

Users can calculate the best route between two locations reducing travel time and cost

Jul 12, 2011

Mexico City July 12, 2011 – NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data enabling navigation, location-based services and mobile advertising around the world announced today the launch of a web portal in collaboration with PEMEX that enables users to locate PEMEX service stations and the type of fuel each station offers. Users of the portal can plan their trips, identify where they can get gas, and calculate both the distance to their destination and the estimated travel time. 

The web portal, “Travel with PEMEX,” will be online starting today. Powered by NAVTEQ’s location portal solution, it will allow users to find gas stations and help them quickly and easily identify the best route between two locations anywhere in Mexico.

 

According to Claudia Ponce Ramirez, the portal manager at the state-run refining company PEMEX, “This tool is one of the latest moves towards modernization by the federal administration. It allows us to provide added value to new users. It’s not just a directory of service stations: it’s an interactive portal that will help our users determine the best route to their destination, thus helping them save time during their trip and plan their fuel expenses," says the executive.

 

NAVTEQ’s location portal solution has a wide range of features for the application that PEMEX will now offer the general public. Attractive and very user-friendly, the webpage quickly shows the gas stations in different cities in Mexico while also allowing users to come up with all sorts of routes across the country.

 

“We are very pleased to be working with an institution such as PEMEX, and even happier to be able to present Mexicans with a tool with so many features. ‘Travel with PEMEX' illustrates PEMEX’s commitment to providing their customers with added-value services," says Javier Nuñez, NAVTEQ Enterprise Sales Director for Latin America.

 

The data on the portal is limited to gas stations in Mexico, but individuals and institutions anywhere in the world who want to know more about PEMEX and the services it offers can access the portal.
