Central Transport will be re-opening the Houston, TX facility, today. While open, we will have limited service and operations, due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Ike. Central Transport will be making efforts to service all customers who are open and can be reached safely. Customers willing to pickup freight @ our facility can call 1-800-4-CENTRAL to make arrangements.
The Houston/Galveston area has been declared a “Disaster Area”, where over 1.5 million homes and businesses are still without power. Traffic backups have been prevalent as residents begin to return home after the mandatory evacuation. The (I-45) Gulf Freeway remains closed from FM519 to Galveston Island. Only emergency responders are gaining access. Former residents of Galveston are being urged not to return home, as the area is considered “uninhabitable”.
