Hurricane Sandy update: 10/31/2012
We are happy to report that all CaroTrans Team Members and their families made it thru the storm. All Carotrans offices are up and fully operational as well as our receiving facilities in Baltimore, Boston and Philadelphia. The New Jersey receiving facility is sound and functioning on a limited basis until power is restored. All ports affected by the storm except those in the NY/NJ area are operational as of this writing.
However, Port Authority NY & NJ reported on 10/30 at 4:09pm that there is no electrical power and no time frame for repair. The channels are closed, roads covered with debris and traffic signals are out of service. Rail track has been compromised and fence lines show widespread disrepair.
All sailing schedules on www.carotrans.com are being monitored and updated daily as the underlying carriers adjust their vessel schedules. CaroTrans customers booked to ship via the New Jersey gateway over the next days will be contacted by our customer service team to update sailing information and to provide other options.
We will continue to provide daily updates of this situation on our website at www.carotrans.com .
