Weather Update


Many gates and container terminals at ports across the South Atlantic States, including Miami, Jacksonville, Everglades, Savannah and Charleston, have reopened. However, the Port of Brunswick remains closed and without power.  

Please note that export early receiving and additional days of free time will be determined by each terminal. 


Air cargo service is gradually picking up speed in Florida and Georgia but delays could still occur. 


CSX rail traffic into Jacksonville reopened last night. Service to Tampa is expected to resume tonight. All intermodal traffic destined for Florida East Coast Railway locations (Ft. Lauderdale, Fort Pierce, Miami and Port Miami) has resumed acceptance at in-gate.  

Norfolk Southern (NS) routes are being restored to service as it is safe to do so. Regional flooding and power outages continue to impact some areas. 


Many trucking terminals in Florida and Georgia are running limited operations and working as quickly as possible to resume normal operations. Pickups and deliveries are restarting as it is deemed safe to do so.  Please note that longer than normal transit times are to be expected and guaranteed services are currently unavailable. 

If you have shipment-specific questions, please contact your local Ascent Global Logistics representative or call 1.800.614.1348.
