Fleet Management in the Snow
Fleet management during times of severe weather is made easier with the right routing software.
Barcoding, Inc. headquarters got hit with some snow last night. While most of us were still able to get some work done, it made me wonder how severe weather impacts the transportation and logistics industry, especially with Valentine’s Day just around the corner.
Severe weather not only impacts fleet management operations, but according to a new study from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the increasing prevalence of severe weather will have negative effects on infrastructure, agriculture and the overall well-being of humans.
Fleet managers can do their best by investing in the right logistics software to safeguard against storms that affect ground transportation.
Extreme amounts of snow lead to dangerous road conditions. But with the right routing software, fleet managers can get the help they need to identify the fastest and safest alternate routes.
