Seaboard Marine wishes to advise our valued customers that we are monitoring Hurricane Laura as the storm moves inland across western Louisiana.
Jacintoport cargo terminal will reopen today at 1:00 PM CDT for limited trucking and rail activities. We anticipate fully reopening tomorrow for all activities, including vessel operations. If vessel operations resume tomorrow, August 28, it is expected that the M/V AS Petra will dock.
The Port of New Orleans has reopened. The M/V Nordbaltic departed on its southbound voyage yesterday and proceeded on its regular rotation.
Many of our ships have been delayed in recent days due to the challenging weather conditions and temporary port closures in many countries due to Hurricane Laura and Tropical Storm Marco, including Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Belize. All foreign ports are now open, though.
As Laura’s trajectory continues moving northward through Louisiana, we will provide additional updates as developments occur.
We appreciate the patience and support of our customers during the 2020 Hurricane Season.
