Teletrac Navman announced DIRECTOR Weather, a new API integration powered by Weather Telematics. Accessible within the Teletrac Navman DIRECTOR fleet management platform, this tool delivers real-time weather-based road conditions and predictive weather intelligence up to 6 hours in advance so dispatchers can be advised of delays and safety risks.

Each year, extreme weather patterns and hazardous road conditions negatively impact fleet logistics, maintenance, productivity and, most importantly, safety. In 2017 alone, the U.S. experienced a historic 16 separate weather and climate disasters — the highest number of events during a calendar-year since 2011, according to the National Centers for Environmental Information. With DIRECTOR Weather, fleets mitigate risk through real-time access to weather-based road conditions including water, snow, and ice, as well as inclement weather leading to visibility, hail, wind, lightning and hydroplaning risks.

Information from this predictive data integration enables fleet managers and dispatchers to determine if a driver’s route needs to be adjusted or canceled altogether, as far as six hours in advance. Two-way messaging, real-time and predictive weather conditions and on-the-fly rerouting by dispatchers help guide at-risk drivers, ensuring they take the necessary precautions and stay in control during adverse conditions.
