RightRoute

Pinpoint and avoid weather-related road delays –– days in advance

The world's most advanced weather-adjusted ETA predictions.

Tell us your start/end locations and departure time up to 7 days in advance

We model the weather impact along your route

We report a percentage by which traffic will be slowed down from normal, due to weather

See the impact from day one

1

Improved visibility and delivery window accuracy

Multiple days notice = greater transparency and increased customer retention.

2

Driver safety and accident prevention 

Accidents cost trucking companies between $20 and $40 million per year on average. 

3

Maximize efficiency when delays are expected

Proactive changes in workforce, less overtime pay, reduced operating costs, and higher productivity.

4

Optimized inventory
at all times

Appropriate stocking during times of inclement weather is only possible with proactive knowledge.

Impressively accurate, always transparent

Average error under ± 15%

A major telematics provider independently tested RightRoute on a variety of storms along high volume freight lanes and found our slowdown predictions to be, on average, within 15% of observed values.

Confidence bounds

Sometimes weather can be hard to predict, and our meteorologists will never deny that. That's why we deliver slowdown predictions with confidence bounds so that even as forecasts fluctuate, your strategy doesn't have to.

CASE STUDY

Consumer-facing route providers such as Google and HERE are great tools for ETA, but do not account for weather-related delays outside of real-time.

In April 2020, a powerful snowstorm hit Maine. Four days in advance, RightRoute predicted slowdowns within 10% of what actually occurred.

Short-term and long-term predictions

We produce hourly forecasts out to 168 hours so you can deal with ongoing shipment delays in the short term, or begin to prepare for them in the long-term.

Historical data available for model training

Our ever-expanding dataset contains continuous insights back to 2014. Use historical data to train machine learning models and make better predictions by overlaying our predictive forecast data.

What sets RightRoute apart?

Real ETA predictions

While some of our competitors report weather and road conditions along routes, we quantify that information into actionable insights. We'll report the actual percentage by which our models predict your shipment will be delayed due to weather. This percentage can directly integrate with any existing non-weather adjusted ETA (such as Google or TomTom) or any TMS provider to produce a more accurate route-time. 

Waypoints + individual slowdown points

Our routing engine will recommend the most viable route for your shipment, but if you know your truckload is required to take a specific route or make certain stops along the way, RightRoute allows you to set waypoints by lat/lon. We'll report both overall route slowdown as well as where each individual slowdown is occurring along your route.

Slowdown factors + extreme weather

Gain insight into what types of weather are causing the slowdowns our models are predicting with weather flags. We'll flag the overall route and the individual slowdown points to let you know if it's rain, snow or wind adding time to your shipment. We'll also flag the route for extreme weather if conditions are so severe that roads might close and shipment delays could be significantly higher.

Vehicle type and attributes

Adjust vehicle type parameters to receive forecasts tailored for cars or commercial trucks. Further refine predictions by inputting the height, width, length, weight, and axle weight of your trucks.
