Update Mon 11th 10.00 a.m.  - As GA has declared a state of emergency and most Forwarders/Airlines/Government Agencies and customers are not shipping or receiving freight we will not be operating any of our line hauls Mon night, and our ATL office will be closing down at midday.
We will reassess the situation first thing Tuesday morning and update where things stand at that time.

Update Fri 8th 6 a.m. Due to the forecast track for Hurricane Irma, our Savannah terminal will be closing early on Friday, the 8th of September, and will only be running limited service that day.  There will be no line haul or pickup delivery service in SAV until further notice.  We anticipate the coastal locations of Charleston, SC and Wilmington, NC may also suspend service and or be put under a mandatory evacuation order.

Service to all points in Florida will be suspended as well.  It is anticipated that other areas service areas could be impacted as Hurricane Irma advances, including all points in the Carolinas.  

We also anticipate major traffic issues in the Carolinas and Georgia as people move north out of Florida area.  
Additionally, if we lose power it could take our communications and servers down which means that POD’s, updates and charges may be offline for a while.

We would ask that everyone exercise patience during and after the storm.  
We will do our best to get back to a normal service schedule as conditions and the authorities allow.  

As the track of the storm continues to change we are unable to offer any more detailed information as to who might be open or closed.
If you have any freight scheduled for a move on Monday through Wednesday DO CALL the terminal twelve hours before the expected time to confirm whether conditions at the terminal, on the roads and at the pick-up point/consignee allow this to be done safely.
