Africa – Hurricanes – Shipping to Hawaii – and You!

In our continuing effort to provide timely and important information to all of our perspective, current, and past customers we offer the following:

The following is our fall 2020 synopsis of world climate and its effect on ocean shipping.

If you’ve already booked your fall move or you’re trying to nail down timing, here is additional information for your quiver. 

What could the West African monsoon season have to do with planning your move to Hawaii?
The lead seasonal hurricane forecaster for NOAA’s Hurricane Prediction Center, Gary Bell states, “the agency has never predicted 25 storms in an Atlantic Hurricane season. Until this year.” 

NOAA’s warning confirms that now is the time to organize plans.
This warning is based on an enhanced West Africian monsoon.
How does that affect you?
– 19 to 25 named Atlantic storms (an average season is 12 named storms)
– 7 to 11 storms become hurricanes
– 3 to 6 of those become major hurricanes
Fuel futures don’t like uncertainty. Our services include ocean, rail, and trucking. Most of our moves from the Mississippi River east to the Atlantic Ocean include all three services. Based on the best available weather science, booking your travel and shipping reservations early will almost certainly save you money this year.

Book your travel and shipping with carriers that have a “no question/no change fee” policy should your travel/shipping be delayed for any reason. As an Industry Leader, we provide this policy to all of our customers.
