Update 9:30am EST:

Additional information just made available.  Those terminals who have not been impacted by any of the current protracted weather event will not be allowed to pick up any freight destined to the Midwest, West and South.

We are hoping to control this by managing origin zip codes at pick up.

Please realize that this is being done to bring our system back to a normal velocity…  and this will take a while.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.   Lets hope that the new storm doesn’t amount to anything.

Stay safe

Original alert:

Saia has announced multiple terminal closures due to weather. The most up-to-date list can be found here. They have also advised that the current storms are affecting capacity and service (service defined as pickups, transit times and deliveries) will be interrupted by the winter weather.
