UPDATED: Hurricane Ian Impacting Southeast United States

  • Effective Date: September 28, 2022
  • Affected Regions: North America
  • Advisory Type: Weather
Dear Valued Customer,

With Hurricane Ian making landfall today along the West Coast of Florida, impacts from the storm are ongoing.  We anticipate capacity supply constraints in and around the impacted areas throughout the week and are supporting emergency response needs as power outages and flooding occur.

Truckload capacity in Florida will continue to become constrained through the duration of the storm and as recovery efforts get underway. As additional impacts are expected throughout the Southeast, your C.H. Robinson team is here to support you with planning, alternative solutions and tracking your freight.

Many LTL carriers will have limited to no service in Florida through the duration of the storm and until impacts from Ian clear into this weekend. Expect delays on both pickups and deliveries for shipments within Florida. Delays can also be expected for other Florida bound shipments as those will likely be held in other states until normal operations resume.

Like LTL, many rail carriers have begun operational changes for shipments inbound to Florida and delays are anticipated. Expect delays for any shipment into the impacted area to continue through the rest of this week at a minimum.

The Port of Tampa Bay is currently closed due to weather conditions and will remain closed until further notice. The Port of Jacksonville will be closed effective at 12:00pm EST today. In cases of port closure, damage assessments will occur before ports reopen and operations resume.
