Freightwaves is reporting that Hurricane Dorian will continue to impact Norfolk Southern and CSX customers, according to the two railroads.  The Hurricane is traveling up the east coast, and the eastern U.S. supply chain has broken down due to the storm.

Norfolk Southern reported on September 5 that “Traffic destined to or shipping from the affected areas may experience some delay. As the storm progresses north, traffic patterns are stabilizing in Florida and southern Georgia . . .”  NS reported, too, that the railroad has already started taking intermodal traffic headed for Florida, and traffic headed to Charleston and Savannah is being accepted today.

CSX says that it is redirecting and delaying traffic as necessary, and advises customers to refer to CSX’s real-time service advisories for the latest information.
