Mon 17th Sept - All Stations excepting Wilmington, NC (ILM) resume operations today, and line haul ran last night (Sun 16th).

Tue 11th Sept Update on Hurricane Florence A State of Emergency is in place for NC and SC.
Both State Governors have declared a state of emergency with the current hurricane path tracking straight over our Wilmington, NC Station and likely making landfall the morning of on Thursday 13th.
The SC Governor has closed all highways Southbound as of Noon Tuesday
We expect the Charleston office to evacuate at the end of today, and the Wilmington office is closed as of tomorrow, and service to Myrtle Beach is also suspended until further notice.
The storm is also likely to impact operations in Columbia, SC (possibly Greenville, SC), Raleigh NC and possibly Greensboro, NC.
The line haul to the SC points will definitely not run again until Sunday night at the earliest – but that depends on any necessary clearance operations.
Any freight in the path of the storm needs to be routed out with immediate effect as we cannot be liable for damage or loss in the event of the storm impacting said items.
Be aware that if we lose power, communications and do not have the ability to refuel, then it will take time to re-open and get back to full operating capacity.
Be aware, that the consignees are likely to shut ahead of the storm, and will also remain closed until clean-up operations have been completed.
Check in with your local Station before assuming your freight has been delivered/picked up once the storm gets close to shore.
