Tracking currently provides important information on the movement of goods in Europe: Are there problems in cross-border traffic? What delays must shippers and forwarders be prepared for? Are there alternative routes that promise relief? Transporeon partner Sixfold prepares the position data of tens of thousands of trucks in an anonymised form and displays them visually on an interactive map of Europe. We thus provide important decision-making aids – completely free of charge during the corona crisis:
|Green:||no or minimal delays (max. 15min)|
|Yellow:||delays of up to 2 hours|
|Red:||Delays over 2 hours or traffic jams longer than 5 km|
|Black:||Delays over 3 hours or traffic jams longer than 10 km|
Most recently, the number of late deliveries in road haulage throughout Europe was only three to seven per cent above the long-term average, although there were higher deviations on individual days in some regions. "Despite the tense nature of the situation and immediate measures taken by politicians, the situation is largely stable: goods are still reaching their destination," says Wolfgang Wörner, CEO of Sixfold. According to Stephan Sieber, CEO of the Transporeon Group, the data sends a clear signal: "Freight forwarders and logistics departments have processes under control."
