Power and supply chain managers know that the actual disaster is the loss of infrastructure in times of emergency. So when the lights go off, and the grid goes down, how can the public and private sectors work together to get critical resources back on the fastest?
Fortunately, there is no shortage of critical information available – even in dark times. Data sets available to private and public stakeholders provide millions of points of shareable data. From 511 traffic alerts, infrastructure information, live weather updates, and impacts on facilities, the issue only arises when one wishes to access and share this information cohesively across sectors and State lines.
Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic shone a light on the crux of this issue: how can stakeholders collaborate coherently to move resources and fleets to the places they are needed most?
A public-private partnership years in the making has the answer. Created to provide fleet managers, drivers, and stakeholders complete situational awareness while drivers are on the road, the Fleet Management App enables route planners to navigate hazards and plan through all forms of logistical support in real-time.
