Marken Operational Update: Closely Monitoring Central Mexico Volcanic Activity.

Marken is closely following reports across Central Mexico where the country’s most dangerous active volcano, Volcano Popocatépetl, has exhibited increased activity including explosions, tremors and exhalations of vapor, gas and ashes for the past week.

As The National Disaster Prevention Center of Mexico has raised the alert level to Phase 3 with a possible evacuation order affecting millions, air traffic and shipment movement may be impacted as the region continues to experience flight delays, cancellations or temporary airport closures.

Marken and UPS Operations Teams are monitoring all shipments that may be impacted and are taking the necessary steps with Business Continuity Plans in place, to proactively mitigate disruptions and provide alternative arrangements for our clients and patients.

We remain committed to sourcing the best available options for each shipment as we continue to observe ongoing challenges. Please contact your local Marken branch or business professional if you have questions about a particular shipment.

Marken will continue to closely monitor the ongoing situation and will share updates as available.
