Dear Valued Customer,
As Hurricane Florence threatens to make landfall in North Carolina early Thursday morning, the Port Authorities of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia continue to enact comprehensive storm preparations and provide updates based on the conditions currently anticipated.
In addition to the closures, any major damage to port and terminal assets caused by strong wind and storm surge may also lead to vessel diversions which inevitably puts an enormous strain on trucking capacity in the aftermath of a major hurricane.
Updates to Ports of North Carolina (as of 5 PM 9/12/18):
Updates to Ports of South Carolina (as of 5 PM 9/12/18):
Updates to Ports of Virginia (as of 5 PM 9/12/18):
Truck gates at the following Virginia cargo terminals will re-open Thursday, September 13 and observe normal operating hours: Norfolk International Terminal, Portsmouth Marine Terminal, Newport New Marine Terminal, Virginia International Gateway, Richmond Marine Terminal, and Virginia Inland Port.
This update is due to recent forecasts indicating a shift in Hurricane Florence's impact. Port Authority of Virginia is expected to announce additional information tomorrow afternoon regarding terminal operating schedules for the remainder of this week.
OEC Group will continue to monitor the situation as it develops.
