Guidance to Trade on Cargo Processing During Hurricane Irma

Share This:

Just days after Harvey, Hurricane Irma is making its way through the Atlantic. Irma has already wreaked havoc in the Caribbean and is expected to reach Southern Florida as early as Saturday. This unprecedented Atlantic storm has civilians in evacuation mode as the region and several surrounding areas have been declared a state of emergency.

This hurricane season, in its prime, has had an immense impact on lives, jobs, the economy and the nation’s transportation network – especially freight movement.

As an effort to avoid disruption, Office of Field Operations Cargo and Conveyance Security (OFO CCS) has laid out diversion procedures for cargo destined to U.S. ports that are closed due to weather. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, diversion of cargo to open ports was a key factor in allowing trade to continue to operate in the face of the closures of Texas and Louisiana seaports.                                                                                                                                                                                Read More
