Dear GPA Valued Customers,

Due to Hurricane Florence and the potential heavy vessel delays into Garden City Terminal, the current Export Receive Date (ERD) window will be implemented allowing containers to be delivered onto Garden City Terminal 7 days from the scheduled arrival date of the vessel beginning on Thursday, September 13, 2018.

Export receiving will not open for more than two (2) vessels at one time for each service. This will prevent the third vessel from opening  (per Tariff Rule: 34-475).

In these cases, the Authority will only open for a third vessel, in a specific service, when the first vessel completes operations.

Export Receiving will be managed closely.  This is only temporary until the vessel schedules stabilize from the storm delays.

This adjustment has been carefully considered in order to provide improved cargo velocity and flow for customers and clients using the GPA's Garden City Terminal.

The GPA will continue to implement strategic enhancements in order to maintain service levels.
