Weather / Service Updates
DIRECT SERVICE AREA
Weather-related service updates from the past 7 days:
7/15/19 - All facilities are fully operational following landfall of Hurricane Barry.
7/11/19 - We are currently monitoring the situation with Tropical Storm Barry, which is expected to make landfall in Southern Louisiana Friday night (7/12). Currently, there is isolated flooding in some portions of Louisiana that has led to a limited number of delays on freight moving through our New Orleans and Baton Rouge service centers. We do expect, at this point, to run normal city operations tomorrow (7/12). However, customer closings and local authorities may alter those plans. Please check this page again tomorrow for further updates.
NORTH AMERICA LTL NON-DIRECT SERVICE AREA
There are no weather-related service updates within our North America LTL non-direct network for today.
Freezable Freight Advisory
We want to make sure your shipments are handled properly and arrive to their destination the way you intended.
In regards to freezable freight, please note:
- If your freight is subject to freezing, please make sure “Protect From Freezing” is clearly marked on the bill of lading.
- When shipping freight that must be protected from freezing, please download and fill out our Freezable Freight Waiver. More information about our Freezable Freight Policy can be found on our Averitt 100 Rules Tariff, Item 810-50 (for LTL) and 55 (for Truckload).
- We will not pick up freezable freight in one-day lanes on a Friday (or the day before a holiday), or in multi-day lanes on a Thursday or Friday
