Extreme weather trucking

HERE Technologies

Despite the greater frequency of extreme weather events occurring around the globe, freight still has to be delivered on time and on a year-round basis. Truck drivers often find themselves driving through rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog, ice, thunderstorms, tornadoes and high winds. While drivers aren't generally expected to stick to pre-planned routes in extreme weather, fleet managers donít really have the capacity to outline every possible alternate route in anticipation of a future hazardous weather scenario.

Data-driven route planning saves fuel, prevents accidents and improves ETAs, which is why many logistics companies are turning to advanced supply chain optimization solutions with real-time weather alerts and rerouting functionalities. Today, tech-savvy fleet managers are looking for exactly this type of tech innovations to provide them with a sharp competitive edge in an already crowded industry such as long-haul logistics.

As one of the world's leading location platforms, HERE shares invaluable insights, tips and solutions, which will enable forward-thinking fleet managers to significantly improve the safety and efficiency of their supply chain using real-time location data.
