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.

Using Location Data to Understand the Offline Impacts of Online Efforts

Using location-based marketing to drive foot traffic to stores is one of the smartest strategies advertisers can employ today, but it’s coupled with a conundrum: How will they determine if their money was well spent?

Traditional metrics like click-through and conversion rates may be useful for measuring the online effectiveness of digital media campaigns, but they fall short when the goal is understanding offline impacts. Data scientists are beginning to connect the dots between data systems to map out a customer’s movements throughout the d ...

Flat Networks Inevitably Fall Flat When Attacked —Using Secure Segmentation To Protect Your Business

Hybrid IT and the adoption of work-from-anywhere (WFA) strategies have led to the exponential expansion of new network edges. And for many organizations, this has resulted in an expanded and fragmented attack surface that has become a perfect opportunity for bad actors to launch cybersecurity attacks from new attack vectors, undermining the ability of network and security leaders to maintain business operations without disruptions.

Traditional flat networks, including network-based segmentation or even micro-segmentation techniques, cannot ...

Protecting Hyperscale Data Centers From Ransomware and Volumetric DDoS Attacks

Enterprises are adopting hybrid IT, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and 5G to gain operational agility. These tools help them build composable and scalable architectures that interconnect distributed branches, campuses, on-premises data centers, and multi-clouds into a unified network. And yet, in the midst of this change, the enterprise on-premises data center remains an essential component of most networks. Its role is vital because it protects applications, data, and workloads that can’t be moved to the cloud but that still need to be ...
