Winter is quickly approaching in Canada. With supply chains being tight, weather-related delays and accidents can make logistics even more challenging when the weather turns cold. Last fall and winter were especially severe, with heavy rains washing out roads in BC and blizzards frequently closing highways across western Canada.

In 2022, Weatherlogics tested how weather monitoring can improve safety and efficiency in transportation. Join Scott Kehler as he presents the results of their research to help others in transportation and logistics better manage severe weather. Learn more about weather and how such information can be used to help improve safety and efficiency. There are many weather monitoring tools available, but knowing how to use them correctly can make all the difference.
