UPDATE (Sept 15, 2022): As of today, it seems like the rail strike threatened earlier this week has been averted through negotiations between labor unions representing the rail industry and federal labor officials. Averitt continues to monitor the situation very closely and will provide any needed updates to our customers as the situation develops.
(FROM Sept 12, 2022): With all the industry news circulating about the current state of strike talks within the rail industry, we are sure you are concerned about capacity. Here at Averitt, we are monitoring the situation closely, and have already ensured that any of our customers' shipments that we have direct control of are not on the rail this week.
Be aware: if your shipment is with a steamship line or other third-party, you will need to contact them directly for assistance. Please be aware that Averitt offers alternative options, including nationwide full truckload and LTL, as well as global and domestic air cargo capabilities to help you if needed.
