Jarrett Logistics Helps Clients Mitigate Hurricane Sandy Shutdown

Posted by Jarrett on Sep 1, 2013 10:00:00 AM


When Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New England on October 29, 2012, the staff at Jarrett Logistics Systems had already spent countless hours preparing for possible scenarios and anticipating the needs of our clients. With Hurricane Sandy’s impact felt from Florida to Maine and across the Appalachian Mountains over into Michigan and Wisconsin, Jarrett Logistics Systems had 135 customer locations affected by Hurricane Sandy with 28 locations directly in the hurricane path. To prepare individual locations for the potential effects of the hurricane, the customer account teams at JLS began by analyzing what freight could be shifted into other warehouses and what the long term financial impact would be to our customers. On Tuesday, October 30th, logistics coordinators began identifying locations affected by reaching out to individual client facilities.
