We often overlook the risks associated with events of any magnitude until they arrive, but consider what a lack of preparedness could engender. The most obvious cost of neglecting to plan for severe weather may be increased risks of injury or death.
Some of the largest global retailers rely on StormGeo to manage their weather risk. These risks can be considerable and complex, which has led us to develop a range of powerful, customized solutions.
I’m very glad that we chose to work with StormGeo when we did, just a week prior to Hurricane Harvey, and I think the service was invaluable during our ride out.Justin Sefcik

Predict Demand, Manage Inventory
Our extended weather outlooks allow retailers to maximize sales by ensuring they have the right stock, in the right aisles, at the right time.
Minimize Supply Change Disruption
We can pinpoint specific weather threats, along specific routes and at precise times and this empowers our customers to proactively plan and pre-stock ahead of severe weather disruption.
Last to Close, First to Open
With StormGeo’s highly accurate alerts, retailers can continue serving communities and still shut down safely before the storm, and by taking advantage of our ‘all-clear’ signal, retailers can rapidly re-open with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the weather threat has passed.
Fulfill Delivery Promises from Online Stores
Rapidly growing online shopping is driving retailers to offer quicker delivery schedules, often with ‘next day delivery.’ StormGeo flags potential weather impact on deliveries by producing a zip-code specific delivery risk assessment. To ensure no unrealistic delivery commitments are made and consumer experience is maintained, our delivery-delay forecasts are integrated into merchant’s websites.
At StormGeo, we offer many weather solutions to optimize retail operations.
