Reminder: Free Commercial Routing App Available To Marketers

Last year, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Idaho National Laboratory (INL) launched an exemplary new Commercial Routing Assistance (CRA) app, which DHS funded and INL developed in partnership with EMA through the All Hazards Consortium’s working group, and other industry and government operational professionals.

This free app incorporates vetted data to plot multiple automated or custom routing options while also providing state by state information on regulatory waivers, government closures, prohibitions, restrictions on movement and other orders that affect intrastate and interstate transportation during state and federal emergency declarations.

EMA worked closely with CISA and its government partners on development of the app to give marketers, drivers and state association executives the ability to determine in real time, the full impact of emergency declarations on fuel marketers in the states and across the nation.

The App includes a one touch interactive map that allows planners, drivers, and decision-makers to develop strategies necessary to maintain efficient and uninterrupted marketing operations during the COVID-19 environment or other disasters or restrictions.

CDL renewal extensions, state driver license agency closures, CDL driver medical renewal grace periods, rest stops and parking closures, and increased size and weight limitations are included for the entire driver route.
