How to Use Transportation Analytics and its benefits

Through data analytics it's possible to improve vehicle performance, reduce costs, improve processes, establish strategies, optimize routes and times, and foresee and identify problems, among others.

Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Transportation analytics takes a variety of data ecosystems, helping industry leaders to use advanced analytical techniques such as machine learning, Big Data and geospatial data to optimize business strategies in the sector.

Predictive analytics in enterprises can answer questions such as "What is the best possible outcome?" or "What is the most efficient route to effective distribution?" Foreseeing from events that may affect transportation such as weather, road closures, strikes, maintenance, traffic, risk zones and estimate the impact of development projects to help identify an alternative project without obstructing mobility.

With the growth of multimodal transportation, the need for different transportation routes analysis are essential.


Geospatial data and machine learning can be used to analyze where, why and when accidents occur, determine future road projects, keep track and identify pedestrian and vehicles movement patterns behaviors, etc.


Big data analysis applied to the railway sector can improve safety, scheduling, automatic planning, network and ticket management, among many others.

Strategies can be implemented to improve employee performance, identify peak and off-peak periods, optimize routes, costs and maintenance liabilities, design an efficient infrastructure model, or even classify travelers to better maximize sales.


With Big Data and machine learning, you can improve vessel monitoring for more effective voyage planning and execution, forecast weather stations, optimize fuel costs, establish maritime routes that reduce costs and times, etc.

There are many challenges facing the transportation sector today that can be solved with business intelligence analysis focused on transportation.

At PREDIK Data Driven we integrate data analysis from multiple sources, minimizing logistical problems and automating a predictive model to project future trends, identify business needs and build long-term strategies to maximize revenue.

Location analytics to Optimize Distribution Routes

November 2021

Location intelligence through techniques based on Big Data collects spatial data in order to improve the decisions made in logistics centers, allowing the use of location and its related data points, creating solutions and optimizing distribution routes.

This new technological tool finds its immediate application in space-dependent businesses, such as delivery and logistics companies. The data collected through infrastructure sensors, cameras and traffic mapping not only allows them to determine the best locations for their businesses, warehouses and centers, but also allows them to know why certain locations have a direct impact on the success or failure of a business.

Can data science mitigate the supply chain crisis impact?

October 2021

The current global crisis in supply chains is forcing companies to manage their distribution methods by adopting a proactive approach based on Big Data and advanced analytics.

The supply chain crisis has resulted in restaurant chains and fast food outlets running out of key ingredients (e.g.

Problems with Last Mile-Delivery Processes?

October 2021

Several companies, especially in the retail sector, have realized that they need to challenge traditional last-mile delivery solutions in light of recent advances in technology tools.

With the help of location intelligence that gives access to aerial, satellite imagery and high-definition maps, last-mile delivery processes can evolve to the degree that drivers can avoid traffic and expedite deliveries through predictive alerts, fleet managers can focus on planning delivery routes more efficiently based on fuel costs, travel time, road tolls, etc.
