CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Hurricane Irma update

Most major ports, including Freeport, Miami, Jacksonville, Savannah, Charleston and Wilmington are now open and have resumed normal operations.

Among the major rail operators, CSX has resumed operations in Savannah, Tampa and Jacksonville, however, an embargo for containers routed via Savannah remains, as the terminal tries to clear a backlog of freight. Norfolk Southern is also now operational and has lifted its embargo on containers routing via Charleston, Savannah and Jacksonville.

Residual delays are expected throughout the Southeastern U.S. until the congestion subsides.

A new threat has emerged with the formation of Hurricane Maria, however, it will be several days before it can be determined how this storm will affect the U.S. mainland.
