Environmental risk events, such as flooding, can disrupt freight routes and cause business losses. It is therefore crucial to proactively identify and manage these risks. When identifying environmental risks, it is essential to examine the impact of these events on freight routes. In this paper, we extract knowledge about environmental risk events from the knowledge graph and build a machine-learning model to identify freight routes potentially affected by floods. We propose a news recommendation system, namely the News Recommender for Environmental Risk Identification & Analysis (NR-ERIA), to recommend news related to a location of interest that has the risk of being affected by environmental risk events to support the risk management. We conducted experiments on real-world datasets and achieved an accuracy of 0.908 in proactively detecting disruptions, which is 196% higher than the baseline approach, demonstrating the effectiveness of our proposed system.
