Mitigating risk is a daily endeavor in logistics. To help identify pain points, Omnitracs, using a third-party data library and a predictive model, has compiled a database of dangerous locations to determine the most high-risk areas for accidents.
The research found that one-half of the top ten trucking accident factors can be tied to location. These factors include:
- Traffic flow interruption and congestion
- Traveling too fast for conditions
- Unfamiliarity with roadways
- Roadway problems
- Missing required stops
