Aki Laakkonen

Thesis Worker at Vaisala

Session Description
Aki Laakkonen is a committed thesis worker and product marketing trainee at Vaisala. As he nears the completion of his MSc in Economics, Aki’s dedicated efforts have centered around an illuminating master’s thesis that delves deep into the untapped potential of road weather. Serving as our esteemed speaker, he has shared invaluable insights that have added a new dimension to the discourse. n this blog, we explore the realm of “Sustainable and Efficient Logistics Value Chain with Weather Data,” where Aki’s insights illuminate the transformative role of weather insights in optimizing logistics operations.

In the realm of modern logistics, precision and efficiency are paramount. One often underestimated factor that significantly impacts logistics operations is weather. Unpredictable weather conditions can lead to delayed deliveries, increased fuel consumption, and unnecessary driving. The key to mitigating these challenges lies in harnessing road weather data, a powerful tool that can revolutionize logistics planning and execution. When it comes to logistics, accurate Estimated Time of Arrivals (ETAs) can make or break the efficiency of the entire supply chain. Weather disruptions can cause delays that ripple through the entire process, affecting both schedules and customer satisfaction. By integrating road weather data into logistics systems, companies can anticipate and proactively respond to weather-related delays, allowing for better ETA predictions and reduced unnecessary driving.

This not only saves time and resources but also contributes to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly logistics ecosystem. Vaisala, a trailblazer in weather data technology, offers a pioneering approach to revolutionize logistics operations. Their road weather data solutions provide real-time insights into road conditions, temperature variations, and precipitation forecasts. This invaluable information equips logistics planners and execution teams with the knowledge to make informed decisions. By incorporating Vaisala’s data-driven insights, logistics companies can optimize routes, adjust schedules, and allocate resources effectively, all while minimizing weather-related disruptions. One of the most significant advantages of leveraging road weather data is the ability to prioritize safety and fuel efficiency. Logistics planners can proactively choose routes that are less susceptible to weather-based delays. By avoiding routes prone to heavy rainfall, snowstorms, or extreme temperatures, companies can ensure the safety of their drivers and cargo.
