Many businesses ship weather-sensitive products such as wine, food, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. Shipment Weather uses worldwide weather forecast data to verify that the weather at the shipping destination is within provided parameters that will not damage the items being shipped. Users can plan shipments that reduce product spoilage and increase customer satisfaction.
The tool helps reduce product returns and bad reviews by aligning shipping dates to favorable weather conditions at the destination. You can import your existing order lists into the easy-to-use, web-based interface, and Shipment Weather system will automatically use the most current weather forecasts for each destination location to identify at-risk shipments. For shipments that are at risk of experiencing increment weather, Shipment Weather will offer suggested adjustments based on weather criteria that are specific to the product being shipped.
