National Hurricane Center data, which is also housed in the FreightWaves SONAR platform, showed Dorian producing winds as high as 165 mph as it moved through the Bahamas. According to Nate Tabak
FreightWaves has opened up its SONAR freight data platform, free of charge, to help carriers, shippers, and third-party logistics providers prepare for Hurricane Dorian and provide relief in its wake.
The broader SONAR platform also contains freight data from over one thousand sources that create actionable outcomes for capacity planners. There is also a direct feed from Twitter that offers filtered content from 30,000 of the most relevant news publishers, organizations, and commentators. The comments can be further filtered for specific terms around hurricanes, Dorian, FEMA, disaster relief, and over 70 other major terms.
SONAR’s Critical Event Center offers unparalleled views of major weather events and information to assist companies involved in relief operations in managing their networks.
SONAR access will be open to all for free through September 6, 2019. There is no obligation or credit card required.
“Our goal is to provide the fastest data and insights on what is happening in the market to ensure that carriers, 3PLs, shippers, and first responders have the most up-to-date and relevant information in the market. I managed logistics for FEMA operations that included thousands of trucks and know how chaotic it can be. Hopefully, providers will be able to utilize SONAR to make more informed decisions, track the storm and activity surrounding it, and ultimately provide faster relief services to the affected area,” Craig Fuller, CEO, and Founder of FreightWaves stated.
