CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Huge storm approaches South East Asia

Nations across East and South East Asia are issuing emergency alerts and ordering evacuations as Super Typhoon Mangkhut and a second storm, Typhoon Barijat, hit the region. Current wind speeds are up to 285 kilometers per hour (180 mph), equivalent to a Category 5 Hurricane and stronger than Hurricane Florence, which is currently tracking over the U.S. East Coast. Port closures in Hong Kong and other coastal ports nearby are a certainty, even if the storm passes without causing any lasting damage. Super Typhoon Mangkhut, is expected to be the strongest storm to hit that city in over six decades.

We will continue to monitor this situation and update accordingly.
