Changing weather conditions pose a considerable challenge to the trucking industry and can lead to dramatic increases in fuel and labor costs due to unexpected delays.  ATRI has developed a real-time weather information system for commercial drivers that will utilize CLARUS-related data to develop critical weather thresholds based on unique trucking industry issues and needs, and provide real-time notification to truck drivers who are nearing critical weather conditions.  This system will provide drivers with the information needed to make alternative routing decisions and notify shippers of possible delays.
