With access to over 20.000 weather stations worldwide, our software SmartCAE Temperature Profiles lets you create temperature profiles of global shipping lanes with an arbitrary number of waypoints based on historical weather data.
The software makes it easy to generate global shipping lanes by connecting weather stations close to lane waypoints. At each waypoint the software provides the local historical temperature data from nearby weather stations. Solar irradiance can be accessed as well. Historical temperature data reach back about 10 years for most stations, and are typically sampled in one hour intervals, depending on the weather station. These data allow for a statistical evaluation of a shipping lane: the mean and 95-percentile temperature value on a daily or monthly basis, the probability for extremal temperature events – these statistical characteristics provide valuable insight into the expected thermal risk on a lane for temperature controlled logistics. It is also possible to export lane temperature profiles for further analysis.
