Info due to Hurricane Irma.

Irma flooded parts of Jacksonville, Savannah and Charleston yesterday. An estimated 6.6 million people are still without power across the southeastern US, mainly in Florida and Georgia. Due to its size, Irma had a wide ranging impact and supply chains will be severely affected. Fuel and truck shortages are expected.
Our DACHSER Miami offices remain closed until further notice. Managers will be available via cell phone and email if power is available. Our Atlanta offices are fully operational as of this morning.
Port and Airport updates:

Port of Miami: The port will remain closed for marine traffic until further notice. Inspections are currently underway. Potential resumption of vessel operations tomorrow.
