  • Hurricane Florence Update: September 11, 2018

    Hurricane Florence influencing transportation: Fry is very concerned about Hurricane Florence in the Atlantic and delivery in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. We expect FEMA to move hundreds of truckloads of relief supplies into the affected areas over the next several days. 

    More from one of our carriers: securing trucks to the southern and southeastern corridor is becoming more and more difficult. Drivers are hesitant to head south due to safety concerns. 

    Customers should be prepared for delays on all levels of shipping in areas anticipated to be affected by the storm as well as surrounding areas. 

    CH Robinson believes that the areas from Richmond, VA, to Atlanta, GA will be the most difficult to secure trucks in the coming days. Additionally they anticipate that I-95 may be shut down by Friday which will affect shipments headed further south into Florida. 

    We will post updates about the situation as we learn more.


    Florence is currently a Category 4 Hurricane, with sustained winds of 140 mph. It is expected to make landfall near Wilmington, NC late Thursday evening or early Friday morning. The storm is anticipated to stall out over North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia with heavy winds and rain, which will cause significant flooding and power outages.

    Mandatory evacuations began at noon today (Sept. 11) on I-26 out of Charleston, SC. All lanes will be converted to one way moving west only. Heavy congestion is expected on roadways moving traffic from the coastline areas inland. Fuel lines are starting to form at many locations in these areas; however, we are not aware of any closures at this time.
