Hurricane Ian Update - September 29

As a result of Hurricane Ian’s landfall on September 28, the state’s largest cargo seaport at Jacksonville on the Atlantic has shut down ahead of the storm. In addition, Miami and Port Everglades were sending bigger ships out to sea and halting landside operations.


Here are additional updates:


  • Charleston – The port and the Dunavant terminal are closed tomorrow, September 30.


  • Wilmington – The port will remain open. However, the Dunavant terminal will be closed tomorrow, September 30.


  • Savannah – The port is open as of now, but it will likely close tomorrow, September 30, due to rain and wind. If the wind is 40mph sustained, the port will close, and no local drivers will be available tomorrow, September 30. We will run regional drivers to Fort Payne and Adairsville, both of which are currently away from the weather. 


  • Atlanta – While there will likely be no drivers to Savannah tomorrow, September 30, we will continue to move product locally in Atlanta.


We continue to monitor Hurricane Ian closely and will work with our customers to move their products in a safe and expeditious manner.
