Operational Update: Hurricane Harvey – Houston, USA

31.08.2017 / 22:38

CEVA has and will continue to closely monitor the impact of Hurricane Harvey and updates regarding our operations are being communicated regularly.

The situation at 4pm Houston time; Thursday, 31 August is as follows:

  • The Port of Houston remains closed due to safety concerns, but cleanup efforts are underway to remove dangerous debris and free-floating watercraft swept into the port by floodwaters from upstream. Port authorities are working alongside the U.S. Coast Guard to determine when operations can safely resume 
  • Both Houston Hobby Airport (HOU) and George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) reopened late Wednesday afternoon with limited domestic passenger service only. Their plan is to begin a phased return to service, with full service expected to be restored by this weekend. Some carriers are indicating that it may take some additional time before they are back at full schedule
  • CEVA’s Houston FM operations are open with 50% staff able to make it to the station. Customers HP and Academy are shipping and receiving, and deliveries are being made locally to businesses that are open
  • P&D Agent partners have begun limited operations in the Houston market subject to local road conditions
  • In addition to the many road closures due to remaining floodwaters, there are mandatory curfews in place throughout the region which limit where and when our associates and drivers can be on the roads 
  • A local power outage has forced the closure of our contract logistics site in Sealy, Texas today.

CEVA cannot rule out the possibility that the above or other operations may be affected by current adverse conditions. CEVA works towards minimizing any potential impact to our customers.

We would like to thank our customers for your patience and understanding.
