Floods and Freight Ð Journey through Detroit

Weeks ago, Detroit flooding turned roads into rivers making logistics difficult for companies that rely on the regionÕs highways to ship goods. Years ago this situation would have created impossible problems for truckers and haulers, but with modern technology, drivers can now avoid trouble spots and minimize the weatherÕs financial impact.

Aided by GPS and on-board computers, along with the local knowledge and experience of the drivers, they were able to navigate around problem areas and traffic without much delay. This kept trucks and drivers safe by preventing flood interference with freight delivery.
