Weather Alert – Hurricane Delta

Date  October 7, 2020

Location United States Gulf Coast and Southeast

Description Hurricane Delta is immerging from the Yucatan as a CAT 2 hurricane and is scheduled to make landfall early Friday in Louisiana as a Cat 3, according to the National Hurricane Center. Chances are increasing for life-threatening storm surge and dangerous hurricane-force winds along the coast of Louisiana and Mississippi, beginning Friday.

Recommendation The Sensitech® Supply Chain Intelligence Center (SCIC) recommends shippers continue to monitor developments throughout the week and weekend and confirm if destination facilities in the area will be impacted and have alternate plans for secure staging locations outside of the storm’s path. The SCIC continues to strongly recommend that shippers and manufacturers utilize covert GPS tracking as part of a layered security program to mitigate the risk of theft. In the event cargo is stolen, the ability to provide real-time, accurate location coordinates to law enforcement is an essential component of a successful recovery.
