August 25th Force Majeure Notice
The purpose of this letter is to advise you that, due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control arising from the approaching Hurricane Harvey, Comcar Industries and its subsidiaries (collectively “Comcar”) is unable to safely operate in key areas of Texas and Southern Louisiana in the path of Hurricane Harvey and has declared Force Majeure effective today, August 25, 2017, for the transportation of any cargo in those areas.
In accordance with Comcar’s Bill of Lading, General Exceptions, and/or any similar provisions contained in any applicable transportation or carrier service contract, Comcar is unable to meet any obligations and is not otherwise legally responsible for any loss or damages because of this Act of God, and/or Force Majeure event and/or any subsequent civil unrest. Accordingly, performance under any such bills of lading or contracts is, to that extent, frustrated and no cause of action for breach or liability will arise as a consequence of this Force Majeure and any subsequent civil unrest.
While we expect to resume full operations of our transportation or carrier services in those areas affected in the near term, we cannot yet determine the full impact or duration of this situation and regret any inconvenience this tragic event may cause you due to these circumstances beyond our control. We will continue our force majeure status until it is determined safe to operate in those affected areas and will allocate available transportation and carrier services in a manner that is fair and reasonable and in accordance with contract terms.
Comcar’s primary concern is the safety of our employees, the community, and our facilities. We will continue to monitor this situation and use appropriate and commercially reasonable means to provide you with service.
We sincerely appreciate your patience during this difficult time.
