Winter Snowstorm on U.S. East Coast Delays Transport

A massive winter storm that blanketed the U.S. East Coast in snow over the past weekend has caused delays in freight shipments throughout much of the area, according to American Shipper Shippers’ Newswire.  Several airports were shut down on Sunday, February 7, because their runways had not been cleared, and freight railways were also adversely impacted.  Norfolk Southern Railway has warned its customers to expect delays and has invoked force majeure, which absolves the railway from being liable for late deliveries.

Weather forecasts are predicting another 5 to 10 inches of snow for the mid-Atlantic region on Tuesday, February 9, and Wednesday, February 10.

More information will be posted when it becomes available.
