This morning, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, predicting more winter ahead. And, as the current winter storm sweeps across the country, CJ Logistics America’s Transportation team is carefully monitoring the weather situation and working to manage the storm’s impact on customers’ shipments.
Every February 2, Punxsutawney Phil, of Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, emerges from his burrow to observe weather conditions and look for his shadow in order to make a prediction about the weather ahead. If he sees his shadow, the prediction is for six more weeks of winter; if he doesn’t see his shadow, it’s warmer temperatures and an early spring.
No matter what Phil saw this morning (according to most reports, he has about a 40% accuracy rate over the course of his long career), the Farmers’ Almanac reports that “winter isn’t going anywhere any time soon—our long-range predictions say winter is here for the long haul…spring will officially arrive with the Vernal Equinox on March 20, 2022, at 11:33 am EST, however, warmer, spring-like weather may not arrive until a little later.”
While CJ Logistics America might not be Punxsutawney Phil or the Farmers’ Almanac, on February 2 and every other day of the year, our teams can help you assess, predict and preempt change. We leverage business intelligence and analytics to translate the patterns and possibilities, using data and information to draw insights and support our findings. Our solutions create value for our customers – in winter or spring, and summer and fall too.
