CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

U.S. East Coast ports threatened by Hurricane Florence

With Hurricane Florence just days away from hitting the Carolinas as a major hurricane (Category 3-4), port, rail and marine terminals are preparing for a complete shutdown. It may also be necessary to restrict export shipments at inland rail terminals, as the impact of the storm could spread far beyond the coastline.

Weather experts are forecasting a storm surge of up to 13 feet along the coastlines of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, along with freshwater flooding due to heavy rainfall and hurricane force winds along the coast and inland.

It is now almost a certainty that the hurricane will hit the U.S. East Coast. The only uncertainty is the exact point of landfall.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and advise accordingly.
