Rainy Day Delays
Due to Hurricane Nicole impacting Florida on November 10, 2022, FedEx has suspended both Express and Ground services in over 800 Florida zip codes. On Thursday, FedEx released a statement advising that due to the storm, Express services would be suspended in 801 zip codes while Ground services in 263 zip codes would also be suspended. Due to this, FedEx is expecting delays to be present for the next few weeks on shipments picking up from and delivering to those affected counties. These delays adding on top of supply chain delays brought on from an even stronger storm that made its way through the state less than 2 months prior.
Hurricane Ian, which made landfall in Southwest Florida on September 28, 2022, devastated the citrus economy as well as the fertilizer industry by producing heavy flooding in the area, county wide blackouts, and caused multiple fuel stations to close for several days. Although most of the infrastructure remained intact, the delays led to a slight rise in both transportation costs and product for the time being.
With Hurricane Season finally coming to an end, companies have a chance to catch up on shipments and deliveries that have become backed up over the last 10 weeks. All in time for the 2022 Holiday season rush.
