CRA: Visualizing Data for Seamless Commercial Routing

Commercial Routing Assistance (CRA)
Technology No. CW-20-17
The Commercial Routing Assistance (CRA) tool is a software application that helps logistics professionals, transportation planners, and commercial vehicle dispatchers plan vehicle movements across multiple states quickly, particularly during emergencies. The tool merges coordinated and vetted data streams, plots multiple automated or custom routing options, and visualizes the wide variety of state regulations and actions a driver would encounter along a route. CRA was developed in response to an urgent request by the Department of Homeland Security to address challenges to delivering essential resources and products during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its advantages over alternatives include the ability to aggregate information into a central location, visualization of state-level data relevant to the industry, and a dynamic and frequently updated data summary dashboard.
