Effective Immediately – Routing Empties to the PPCY

Trucking Partners,

As we prepare for the effects of Hurricane Florence, we are pursuing multiple operational strategies designed to protect all maritime interests. Properly positioning and securing empty equipment is a primary concern.

For the remainder of today, September 10, we strongly encourage all trucking companies and drivers to deliver all empty equipment to the PPCY, regardless of matrix routing.

For tomorrow, September 11, the matrix will be updated to reflect all empty routings via the PPCY.
• No empty returns permitted at VIG from 0200 hours – 0500 hours on Sept. 11

Until further notice, no empty equipment should be returned to the marine terminals.

Thank you for your support.
