How Hurricane Florence affects freight
SEPTEMBER 11, 2018
Big weather events like this usually affect the spot freight market in three stages. Before the storm , there’s urgency to move freight into the area or out of the way of the storm’s path. FEMA and other emergency responders will move freight to temporary warehouses just outside the storm zone, waiting until road conditions are stable. Some of those loads are already being tendered to freight brokers and 3PLs, who post them on DAT load boards.
