Hurricane Florence set to hit USA East Coast - September 2018

Posted on 13 September 2018

Hurricane Florence is on track reach land on the US east coast somewhere along South or North Carolina by the end of this week.

Hurricane Florence is packing winds of more than 200 kilometres an hour, and forecasters warn it threatens to create a storm surge that could spread inland into the Carolinas and Virginia.

Supply Chain Operations

Ports along the US East Coast are working but taking measures to prepare for the storm’s arrival in the next 72 hours. We are expecting to see closures as Hurricane Florence moves closer. More information on port closures can be found here.

Mainfreight Branches

At this time all our offices remain open. Our Charleston office will be taking advice for emergency services and closing when advised.

As always our team will be working hard to minimise the impact on our operations but due to circumstances out of control we will most likely see disruptions to our service. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these challenges together. We will continue to provide updates into next week.

Our thoughts go out to those who are preparing to endure Hurricane Florence.

 

Update 17th September 2018

Hurricane Florence has now been downgraded to a tropical storm. The main concern now is the rain, rivers have swelled and thousands of people have been ordered to evacuate for fear that the next few days could bring the more destructive flooding.

Our Mainfreight branches remain open but service in and out of these areas will be affected. 

As always our team will be working hard to minimise the impact on our operations but due to circumstances out of control we will most likely see disruptions to our service. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these challenges together.
