Storm Stella causes 48 hour delay to US East Coast shipments

No primary category set

Royal Mail has warned that Storm Stella is likely to delay mail arriving on the East Coast of the United States as most of the East Coast airports have closed. The delay is likely to be a minimum of 48 hours covering all of Tuesday and in all liklihood into Wednesday. As the airports are shut, flights destined for the States naturally won’t be taking off until the airports are reopened.

For Royal Mail, the affected airports are O’Hare International Airport in Chicago and JFK in New York. As Storm Stella is expected to bring significant volumes of snow across New York state, New Jersey, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and possibly Washington DC.

Shipments arriving on the West Coast (San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport) are not expected to be affected.

For Royal Mail letters products, zip codes beginning with 0,1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 will be affected by the delays.

Naturally the weather is likely to affect other carriers shipping to the East Coast as well.
