In order to keep our teammates out of a potentially dangerous hurricane or its associated severe weather, Team Cone is adjusting our schedule for September 1-3, 2019.
While we are still uncertain the path that Hurricane Dorian will take, we would rather be prepared and keep our teammates safe and prepared. The safety of our teammates is our first priority. To keep our teammates out of some potentially dangerous weather, so we will be working a day ahead this week.
The planning and management team met this afternoon, Tuesday, September 3, 2019 concerning the issues presented by Hurricane Dorian. The primary focus of the leadership at Cone Distributing is the safety and well-being of the members of Team Cone and their families. Accordingly, the plan is to shut down ALL operations on Wednesday, September 4, 2019. Again, both Ocala and Tallahassee facilities will be closed tomorrow, September 4th, 2019. Cone Distributing will reopen and resume operation on Thursday, September 5th at both our Tallahassee and Ocala facilities.
(Please note: due to Department of Transportation regulations, if wind speeds grow too great, then our trucks cannot operate on roads and highways.)
We will continue to watch Hurricane Dorian
Our team is monitoring the storm very closely, and while we do not want further changes to the schedule, if the hurricane shifts, then we will make changes for the safety of our team.
We will do our best to communicate these changes to our teammates and to you, our customers. Please monitor this post or our social media channels as the hurricane continues to move towards the mainland United States. We will post information as the situation evolves and changes to affect our service. Our aim is for service changes to be minimal.
