Fancy seeing you here at the intersection of Service and Technology. We have a bit of a different take on your average traffic report. Today, we are taking our theme from a color scheme – Our nectar from a traffic director. You love it; you hate it, but we all need it. It’s the stoplight! In the spirit of stop, slow, and go, let’s find out what’s ceasing, decreasing, and increasing as spring approaches.

Put on the Red Light

Coming to a stop is… winter! Although spring technically commences March 19, we all know that the final swing of the gavel is in the paws of Pennsylvania’s own Punxsutawney Phil. According to our favorite marmot, winter is coming to a halt sooner rather than later! On Groundhog Day 2024, top hats were tipped in joy as Phil turned a blind eye to his shadow. 

Additionally, if you are a fan of daylight savings time, you will likely have happily marked your calendars for March 10 of this year. The much-anticipated time shift puts the red light on dark evenings until next fall.

Yellow, There!

Taking the yellow ribbon are current road conditions. Due to snow, ice, and the vehicles necessary to remove it, our streets and highways have seen greener days. Many bridge and road closures are causing drivers to reroute through cities, altering ETAs and upsetting HOAs.

Take it easy out there, drivers. Slowing down just a hair will allow for safer defensive driving when drivers react to unexpected divots.

Spilling the Green Tea

With St. Patrick’s Day coming March 17, it makes one ponder – What is the true pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the transportation industry? The best answer has to be final mile logistics. Your freight could make it through every color of the arch, but if the last mile is not handled with a golden standard, you’re left lootless. 

Final mile logistics is all about which freight forwarders you trust to get your treasures into the right hands. By prioritizing personal service, updated technology, your values, your freight, and your peace of mind, companies like Blue Eagle Logistics are giving our customers confidence that their freight is being prioritized safely and efficiently.
