Storms To Disrupt Supply Chains

by | Sep 14, 2018

The strong winds of Hurricane Florence are weakening as it reaches closer to the US East Coast, but the impact of the immense storm could still be disastrous for millions of people and the US supply chain.

Florence, which has now been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, will still possibly unleash historic flooding rains and damaging winds in the Carolinas.

With the storm arriving on Friday, transportation companies in the region have moved shipments and products destined for export to secure holding areas until the storm has passed.

The supply chain industry is taking no risks and Port of Wilmington, North Carolina, has extended operating hours for trucks and trains to clear cargo containers from the complex.

The US is not the only region that will be affected by the weather, a super typhoon is building in the Pacific and is forecast to impact the Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South China in the coming days.
