McCleod Express, based in Decatur, Illinois is one of the nation's leading trucking companies. I/T Director Derek Agar uses Weather Defender Commercial Edition to track the location of the company's 340 semi units and 775 trailers on a real-time weather map:
How It Works
Derek integrates an in-house fleet tracking database with Weather Defender's built-in Dynamic Layers functionality to auto-update the location of fleet vehicles inside Weather Defender.
Weather can be tracked with a click of a button such as Radar, Snow and Sleet alerts, and Severe Thunderstorm Watches & Warnings to name a few threats to transportation companies.

The weather in the central U.S. has turned crazy! There are winter storm warnings in the northern tier of states, there are wind advisories on the map and then there's severe weather in Nebraska and Kansas. This map shows just how crazy it's getting. In this view, there's hardly a spot that isn't either currently affected or will be soon.
The winter weather is expected to continue across the Great Lakes and up into New England Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Parts of Wisconsin could see 8-12 inches, New York state could see 3-6 inches and up around Concord, New Hampshire is likely to see nearly a foot of snow.
The severe weather is expected to march through Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky through the overnight hours tonight and up through the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. This will push eventually into the mid-Atlantic region bringing a chance for severe weather into the nation's capital.
