Weather Alert - New Orleans reopens after TS Cristobal

June 08, 2020

As we communicated on Friday, June 5, 2020, tropical storm Cristobal was posing potential risk to New Orleans resulting in the NOPB closing over the weekend.  

We are pleased to report that the NOPB is reopening this evening.  
We will proceed cautiously as we monitor lingering weather conditions. The forecast does have the remnants of the storm heading north over the KCS network so we will be monitoring this closely, as well.  

Please expect delays until the backlog has been alleviated and normal speeds can be resumed.  

We appreciate your patience and understanding on this service interruption and the resulting delays caused by the tropical storm. 

If you have questions related to this communication or your shipments, please don't hesitate to contact KCSR Customer Solutions team for assistance who will be monitoring the situation and can provide additional information specific to your shipment.

Thank you for being a loyal customer.
