Ida – Aftermath And Logistics Update

Ida – Aftermath And Logistics Update

 

 

Last month’s storm – Hurricane Ida – was the second most damaging and intensive in Louisiana’s history and its disruption was felt along the US East and Gulf coasts.

All ocean freight vessels were prevented from moving and many ports and airports were closed for up to 72 hours as the storm battered the US. In some areas, this has created further backlogs and delays at already congested US East Coast & Gulf Coast ports.

The states of Louisiana and Mississippi are still reeling from the impact of the storm and transport throughout the state is often being delayed at the moment.

United States logistics have been heavily disrupted during recent times, following the coronavirus outbreak, and Hurricane Ida has served to intensify the situation further during the past 7-10 days.

We continue to suggest booking early and allowing as much lead time as possible for shipments to or from the US. If you are concerned about any current shipments then please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team.

As ever, Atlantic Pacific continue to work diligently to mitigate supply chain disruption during these extremely difficult times. Should you require further information on the above, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
