“SSL and the port will be closed all day tomorrow to allow staff to make personal preparations for the storm. An advisory will be issued on re-opening as soon as possible once Hurricane Humberto has passed and conditions have been duly assessed.”

CEO Warren Jones emphasized, “Our team has been steadily working the docks since Sunday afternoon discharging goods, and then reloading the MV Oleander on Monday.

“Today, our team is working the Somers Isles container ship. In order to ensure the Oleander and Somers Isles have been fully serviced, the team has not had the opportunity to do any personal preparations. We wish to ensure that they have every opportunity to ensure the safety of their own families and property.”

Importers should collect goods from the Hamilton docks on Front Street by 4pm.
