California Service Interruptions - 10.11.19
Fires, high wind warnings, planned and unplanned power outages in Northern & Southern California

Over the course of the last 48 to 72 hours, the State of California has experienced numerous evacuations caused by fires, dangerously high winds, and planned and unplanned power outages. The maps contained in this release are as of Friday morning 10/11/19 at 8:15 a.m. and only serve to indicate the extent of areas being impacted, yet are by no means comprehensive to the extent of locations being impacted. The areas adjacent to mountain communities, desert areas and mountain passes are most prone to impact in conditions like these and we are seeing this impact occur across the state.

Because of these conditions, deliveries & pickups in any affected area identified here or not, will be delayed until such time as it is safe to do so. Should you prefer to retrieve your products currently tendered and in the possession of RPM Transportation, please contact our customer service team at your local terminal for assistance. RPM Transportation, Inc. is concerned about the safety of all who are in harm's way and to those dedicated first responders and safety personnel who keep us safe in these difficult times. We will work closely to keep information made available and will only make deliveries and pickups in affected areas when deemed safe to do so.

12.04.12 - Port Strike Called to an End
Port operations have resumed at the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles after more than a week of closure . The first day back, terminal operators and steamship lines alike are getting the operations back underway. Questions about container movement, associated fees and penalties for delayed equipment movement, or extensions on free time are among many that will need to be addressed on an individual level.

For the next few days, we are asking that status updates be requested in print to our harbor operations team at RQPM.CSR@RPMCSI.COM with copy to your company sales or operations points of contact. Rest assured, your questions will be addressed and responded to promptly. This method allows us to quickly and efficiently communicate operational planning, and allows it to be shared with the appropriate operations personnel.

With more than a week's worth of vessels still on anchor, over 100,000 containers still on the water or trying to get back in to terminals for returns and exports, equipment movement will be at a premium. Flexibility, patience, and cooperation will be most helpful to all involved in order to get back on track as quickly as possible. RPM Consolidated Services is known as a service based provider and we will do everything we can to insure your products are moved to their destination in the most efficient and secure manner available.

We offer transloading, warehouse storage, consolidation & distribution, project labor for kitting, labeling or similar services, intra/interstate transportation and more in an effort to provide the fastest means possible to market. Please contact your sales representative for help with any of these items, our group email at SALES@RPMCSI.COM, or call us at 800-423-5840 ext 1051 for immediate support.

Thank you for your support,
RPM Consolidated Services, Inc.
