Hurricane Irma Update

(Morristown, N.J.)…Further to our Customer Advisory of September 8, 2017, we are providing the following update:

Port Operations

All ports between Charleston and Miami remain closed today. We are cautiously optimistic that limited operations will resume tomorrow.

Vessel Operations

Based on the assumption that operations will resume tomorrow we have not decided on any port omissions yet with the exception of the cancelled inbound call in Port Everglades, FL of the Elisabeth-S” voyage 18nb (from South America West Coast). All other vessels on the Eastern Seaboard are in standby mode.

Both CSX and Norfolk Southern have embargoed rail traffic to and from Southeastern ports. We anticipate to hear tomorrow when the embargo is expected to be lifted.

Our Southeast Service Center will re-open tomorrow September 12, 2017 at 12:00pm subject to a final building inspection.
