Impact of Hurricane Harvey
Dear Valued Customer,
With the serious impact of Hurricane Harvey on the Houston area and the subsequent disruption to the supply chain, we would like to provide the following updates:
1. All container detention for cargo in customers’ possession is suspended until further notice. Upon resumption of operations, NYK will advise with notice when the detention clock will commence.
2. As of this writing the UP railroad has embargoed all inbound cargo to Houston. We will provide updates as this situation changes. The UP ramp is currently closed and no information is known about the condition of containers at the ramp.
The UP has declared freetime has been extended through 8/30 and will further assess the situation as it develops.
3. Barbour’s Cut is also closed through Wednesday. It is unknown when it will open at this time and NYK will update customers as this changes.
