SERVICE ALERT Jan. 17 - Carriers Limited Across Central USA
Carriers are operating on a limited basis today throughout central U.S. from Minnesota south to Texas.
The areas most affected include Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Omaha.
Carriers are issuing service alerts in these areas that include:
Limited or cancelled pickup and delivery services
Delays affecting shipments traveling through severe weather areas
Embargoes on expedited shipments
Embargoes on shipments with guaranteed delivery times
Embargoes or limitations on freeze protection and temperature-controlled services
Embargoes on service to residential areas
It is likely that freight moving through severe weather areas will experience transit delays. Shipments moving in other parts of the country may also experience residual delays as a result of the disruptions to carrier operations. The tracing tools on myUTS can keep you updated on the status of your shipments and allow you to set up automatic notification of status changes by email.
If you have any questions about how the carrier service alerts impact a shipment, our Operations department would be happy to provide more information. The status of weather advisories can be found at the National Weather Service (
