Even before the official start of summer, we’ve seen weather conditions impact transportation and logistics across the country.

  • High Temperatures
    • Temperatures across the country are expected to rise as the summer begins, with the Southwest and Northeast expected to see the biggest spikes. 
  • Tropical Storms and Hurricanes
    • 2024 Atlantic hurricane season began June 1st. Reports predict a possible record-breaking season for tropical storms and hurricanes. 
  • Wildfires
    • In Canada wildfires have already begun. As the summer sets in, sources predict Southern California, the Southwest, and Pacific Northwest to see increased likelihood of wildfires.

Full Sail Logistics takes the following steps to mitigate the effects of these weather conditions:

  1. Consult weather forecasts on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
  2. Vet carriers for regular truck maintenance, especially in the reefer market.
  3. Strategize with clients about how to lessen the impact on routing and capacity.
  4. Schedule shipments to maximize safety for both drivers and product.
  5. Provide 24/7 tracking and communication for all shipments.
