Carrier Logistics adds WeatherOptics to predict weather delays

by Today's Trucking

Carrier Logistics (CLI) has integrated WeatherOptics into its freight management software for LTL fleets, to notify them of potential weather-related shipment delays.

“With the information provided by WeatherOptics, our customers will be able to get in front of potential weather-related delays,” said Ben Wiesen, president of CLI. “That capability for predictive planning, adjusting ETA predictions, re-routing drivers, and alerting customers when plans need to change can go a long way toward lowering costs, boosting productivity, enhancing safety, and improving customer satisfaction. We’re pleased to have WeatherOptics join our growing list of partners.”

Shippers who fill out a Bill of Lading online will be notified if there’s a likely disruption due to a storm. A customer who is tracking a shipment will see not only the expected delivery date, but also anticipated weather disruptions.

And an operations manager can communicate with the driver hauling a load to consider alternatives that will avoid weather disruptions.  

“CLI has a clear goal in mind for integrating weather insights and delay information with their technology, and they’re making it straightforward and easy for us to bring our solution to their customers,” said Scott Pecoriello, founder and CEO of WeatherOptics. “The fit between our technologies was very apparent because we share the goal of helping transportation companies operate more efficiently and effectively.”
