Shipping Delays Across the Country and Temporary USF Alternative for Shipments from The Green Room

By: Melissa Kelley

Feb 3, 2022

A widespread winter storm is is disrupting travel and power across the U.S. The storm, stretching from Texas to New England has brought freezing rain and more than a foot of snow to a wide swath of the country. Drivers are reporting the conditions are treacherous. Freight will be impacted by system-wide delays as a result. It is likely that your shipment will take longer than normal.

Additionally, we received notification this morning that both the Tacoma and Seattle USF Reddaway terminals are running a minimum of 4-5 days behind on any/all shipments moving through either terminal due to staffing issues related to COVID. Facilities normally staffed with 30+ people are working with only 5-10. Depending on when staff are able to return to work, it is expected to take a minimum of 1-2 weeks before an improvement is recognizable. If your order ships from The Green Room and you use USF Reddaway, we suggest considering other freight carriers for the next few weeks. If you need quotes for your shipment, reach out to Donna at She will be able to share with you the options available to us.

We are sharing this now as we know this information is impactful to a great many of you.
We are sending healing thoughts to those with impaired health.
