Aftermath of Hurricane Irma affects transportation across U.S. Southeast

Freight movement across the U.S. Southeast has been severely disrupted by the continuing impact of Hurricane Irma. Flooding caused by the storm surge is a major problem in many parts of Florida. Many major airports remain closed, while certain roads and highways are not passable.

The list of major ports closed by the storm includes Freeport, Miami, Jacksonville, Savannah, Charleston, and Wilmington. The U.S. Coast Guard has also placed vessel movement restrictions in around many ports affected by Irma.

Among the major rail operators, CSX is reporting closure of its operations in Savannah, Tampa and Jacksonville, while Northern Southern has an embargo on containers from Charleston, Savannah and Jacksonville.

Watch for more updates as the impact of the hurricane is expected to last for many weeks and in some areas may not be resolved for months.

If you have any questions concerning shipments booked with Universal Logistics and how they may be impacted by the above, please call (905) 882-4880, ext. 207 – David Lychek, Manager – Ocean & Air Services.
