Mississippi Lime has confirmed that Midwestern flood levels have receded sufficiently enough to enable the company to resume normal barge and rail loading and shipping.
The company says its team has been committed to keeping its customer base supplied during the event and remains focused on restoring supply chain health.
Mississippi Lime’s distribution and supply capabilities were greatly impacted by the flooding resulting from significant precipitation in the Central United States this Spring and early Summer.
Flooding on the Mississippi River forced the closure of our barge loading facilities on a May and an alternate barge loading facility on 31 May. Also, the flood gates near its Genevieve, MO facility were closed on 3 May forcing Mississippi Lime to use an alternate rail route, which reduced shipment capacity and increased costs.
