Echo: Sandy Delays Freight
Many businesses sent out emails last week letting customers know that order delivery could be delayed due to the storm affecting the Northeast. Behind the scenes, freight shipments were also delayed.
As of Nov. 1, CSX Transportation reopened all of its intermodal terminals and started train service in the areas affected by Superstorm Sandy. However, they still expect a 72 delay on freight traffic, due to congestion in the Northeast region.
Anyone affected is thanked for their patience in this unique situation.
