Extreme weather trucking - Rerouting around hazardous areas with location intelligence

Thumb original here ebook extreme weather trucking

Earth’s climate is changing and becoming increasingly volatile. Extreme weather events, such as floods, droughts, blizzards and hurricanes occur with greater frequency around the globe. In addition to the toll hazardous weather takes on human life and property, many businesses are trying to adequately identify and manage its impact on their revenue streams.

Supply chain and long-haul trucking companies are among the most affected by unexpected weather events. Freight has to be delivered on time and on a year-round basis. Truckers often drive through rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog, ice, thunderstorms, tornadoes and high winds just to meet service-level agreements (SLAs). Such hazardous conditions make heavy trucks of all
sizes dangerous to maneuver and difficult to stop. To avoid serious and even fatal accidents, trucks must be driven at lower speeds, causing inconvenient delays. Most supply chain operators are still failing to mitigate the financial, operation and human risks posed by rapidly changing climatic conditions.

Data-driven route planning saves fuel, prevents accidents and improves ETAs. This, coupled with an increasingly volatile global climate, is motivating companies to look for advanced supply chain optimization solutions with real-time weather alerts and rerouting functionalities.
