Industry members will recall that this declaration was issued to ensure the prioritization of freight related to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The extension and the changes it includes go into effect at 12:00 am Eastern Time on June 15, 2020 and remain in effect until 11:59 pm Eastern Time on July 14, 2020 or until the national emergency declared by the U.S. President is revoked.
Some of the provisions of the March 18 declaration have been changed. The shipment of several items is no longer covered under the extension. Members, please watch your upcoming member notice for further details.
