Marken Operational Update: Closely Monitoring Tropical Storm Idalia Activity
Marken is closely following reports of Tropical Storm Idalia, which is now forecasted to intensify into a major hurricane. The storm is expected to reach landfall by Wednesday, August 30th, 2023 – with impact as early as Tuesday afternoon, August 29th. Current forecasting reports project the greatest impact to Northern Florida before continuing north through Georgia and onward to the Carolinas. Evacuations and State of Emergencies have already been declared throughout Florida counties.
Currently, we are operating as normal and our Marken team is closely monitoring all shipments that may be impacted or delayed due to flight cancellations, local ground collection and deliveries and airport closures. We are prepared to take the necessary steps with Business Continuity Plans in place, to proactively mitigate disruptions and provide alternative arrangements for our clients and patients.
Marken remains committed to sourcing the best available options for each shipment and as we continue to observe these ongoing challenges, we will share updates as available. Please contact your local Marken branch or business professional if you have questions about a particular shipment.
