Shippers should expect delays for air and ocean shipments to, from and within the U.S. in the wake of super-storm Sandy, which devastated parts of eastern U.S., including New York and New Jersey. Paul Tsui, chairman of the Hong Kong Association of Freight Forwarding and Logistics, said supply chain delays could drag out for a number of days. "Most carriers canceled their flights yesterday (Monday), and weather conditions today will determine flight departures today," he said. "I think there will be some delays due to backlogs at JFK, and everyone has to monitor very carefully their shipments, particularly those that are time sensitive."

All information on port closures, major rail network and roadway closings and more will be posted on the JOC the Hurricane Sandy special topic page.
