Fleet Weather Improves Efficiency and Safety
We spend hours watching and discussing the weather. We plan our day and our vacation around the weather. We often feel happy or sad based on the weather forecast. Weather impacts our day in many ways yet so few fleet operators have access to good weather data that used in conjunction with telematics data.
Fleets efficiency and safety is closely tied to weather. Understanding how weather slows work, reduces speed and impacts safety will impact a fleet in many ways from on-time delivery to profitability. Modifying operations to avoid foul weather is relatively easy to do visually when vehicles and weather are viewed together. When future weather can be viewed dispatchers can route around storms and shift delivery times to remain efficient.
Fleet safety has to be the #1 priority of all fleet operators. Fleet weather is a key component of safety for many types of field service workers and trucking companies. Technology today can accurately predict weather conditions from black ice to pouring rain several hours in advance. Diverting a truck around a stretch of highway known to be dangerous in black ice conditions means decreased chances of accidents and delays. With ELD hours of service, taking a break to sit out bad weather and traffic jams can free of time on the other end of the trip.
