CSX continues its embargo on all traffic into and out of the Mobile, Alabama and New Orleans, Louisiana area until further notice. Traffic between Englewood, TX and their Southern terminals will be held at origin until it is deemed safe to move. CSX has advised that they will protect traffic from the Southeast to the West Coast via a diverted route from Atlanta to St. Louis every other day. This route will be used by both CSX and the UP. Crowley personnel are working with CSX and truckers to insure the safest route and best possible alternatives when moving cargo.
