Punxsutawney Phil officially predicted another six weeks of winter! One of the biggest challenges that you are going to face is managing the impact of these weather conditions on your shipments. Whether it is a snowstorm, a hurricane, or a heatwave, it can greatly affect the delivery timeline and costs of your shipment. To mitigate the impact of weather on your shipments, you need a team to stay up-to-date on weather predictions and forecasts.
One of the most important steps that we take is to plan ahead. By staying ahead of the weather, we can reroute your shipments and adjust delivery schedules to minimize the impact of weather conditions on your deliveries.
For example, suppose we know that a major storm is expected to hit a particular region. In that case, we opt to move the shipment to a different route or to an earlier delivery date to avoid the storm’s impact.
Another important factor about our company is communication. We work closely with their carriers, shippers, and customers to ensure that everyone is aware of the latest weather updates and how it will affect the shipment. Our Track and Trace team uses real-time communication channels to keep you informed and updated minute by minute.
