GPA going strong after Hurricane Matthew

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I wanted to take a moment to speak directly to you about your concerns regarding port safety and operational updates during and after Hurricane Matthew.

Words cannot describe the pride I have in the GPA Team, our ILA partners and the Savannah River Pilots. As I'm sure you are aware, many were impacted by this storm and everyone has their personal story of how it disrupted lives, but this did not stop our maritime community. Hundreds of employees in Brunswick and Savannah were on our terminals the day after the storm restoring power, working with emergency responders and testing systems to ensure we could serve our customers safely and efficiently.
