Weather Causing Service Disruptions in Texas and Florida

All:

Please read for an update on Texas and Florida in relation to your freight and the recent hurrianes.

While clean-up has officially begun in Texas after destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, the US is bracing for Hurricane Irma throughout the state of Florida. Most all LTL and TL carriers have returned to full or limited service throughout the Houston area, although LTL carriers may be delayed a day or two for delivery. Both LTL and TL carriers have placed an embargo on freight moving into Florida indefinitely and carriers will begin denying freight destined to the following areas:

NMF

MIAMI, FL

NPB

POMPANO BEACH, FL

NWF

WEST PALM BEACH, FL

NFM

FT MYERS, FL

NPR

PUERTO RICO

NJV

JACKSONVILLE, FL

NTP

TAMPA, FL

NOF

ORLANDO, FL

 

Freight destined for the locations listed above cannot be picked up even at the customer's request and cannot move until further notice. In the event a shipment is picked up in error, the freight will be held at the origin terminal or returned to the shipper.

Recon will update customers accordingly once the embargo has been lifted for Florida. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our operations team.
