IRMA/HARVEY OPERATIONAL UPDATE


Warren, Michigan, September 7, 2017 - Central Transport, LLC, continues to assess the impact of Hurricane Harvey and the current flooding in the Houston and coastal areas, and is now making preparations for Irma. Our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our team members and their families and we are focused on resuming operations as safety allows. Service updates for both areas are detailed below.

IRMA Hurricane Irma is still tracking to make landfall in Florida this weekend as one of the strongest hurricanes in measurable history.

Evacuation of those in South Florida began earlier this week and began to impact operations last night with significant linehaul delays in/out of Miami, Pompano Beach, Tampa and Orlando terminals due to traffic on major roadways.

Current operational expectations: Based on most recent tracking operations in Miami and Pompano will be limited/closed on Friday with many customers closing or not intending to receive/ship that day and to allow the facilities and our employees to prepare in advance of the hurricanes landfall. Effective Friday, September 8 we will suspend all pick-ups destined for the Miami and Pompano service areas. It is expected that this restriction will not be lifted until at least Tuesday, September 12th after the impact of the storm is fully realized. Will continue to monitor and provide updates as this situation develops.

HARVEY We have resumed service to all zip codes in the Houston area, with the exception of those below that are in the areas most heavily impacted by the flooding. At this time, it cannot be determined when service will resume for these zip codes. We continue to monitor and assess the situation daily.
