Freight Delay Notice
Marathon Freight TIP
Plan a little buffer in your freight delivery in the coming months!
Federal Express mentioned the winter snows affected profits for the company this last quarter due to the weather. Story
Some areas of the country haven’t seen the snows but all the states
east of the Mississippi from north to south have been devastated by snow and ice every week for the past 2 months creating backups that are now starting to effect our region. The freight goes into these areas and is backing up because of the weekly closures thus no trailers are returned to our region.
You’ll hear the same thing from other carriers and CSX coming soon.
Marathon Freight is seeing extended backlog of problems and we are suggesting you look into your delivery cycle and buffer additional time in your delivery schedule through this next quarter March – May 2014
