Happy Friday and Happy Autumn “Freight Friends”! Summer is almost behind us, and we are heading into fall!
The fall equinox will arrive Saturday, September 23, 2023, at 2:50AM. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere. The autumnal equinox is an astronomical event that marks the start of autumn or “fall”. In the Northern Hemisphere, the autumnal equinox occurs in September; in the Southern Hemisphere, it occurs in March.

What is an Equinox?
During an equinox, the Sun crosses what we call the “celestial equator”—an imaginary extension of Earth’s equator line into space. The equinox occurs precisely when the Sun’s center passes through this line.

For those in the Northern Hemisphere, when the Sun crosses the equator going from north to south, this marks the autumnal equinox; when it crosses from south to north, this marks the vernal equinox. In the Southern Hemisphere, it’s the reverse.

Even though the seasons are changing, and the freight industry is changing as well. We are hopeful for the future, as we are ready for an influx of retail cargo destined for store shelves and warehouses for the holiday season. All the while we continue to service our steady industrial, medical, and construction clients alike.
