Q&A: When is the last safe day to ship?

Our next question, what is the latest for me to ship goods out of my plants in New Jersey and New York before the storm shuts things down?

We recommend here today into tomorrow being those last days here. Certainly tomorrow is the ultimate last day to do that as again, this snow and ice will begin later on Saturday. I guess the debate in that question is where are those products being shipped to? Certainly if they’re heading westbound or southwest into the storm, then there’ll be delays.

But if they’re heading down I-95 down into the southeast, getting out ahead of the storm, they should be able to do that during either the day today or tomorrow. Maybe early Saturday morning if you’re just at I-95, but heading westbound will then begin to run into the main impacts from the winter storm.
