Emergency Declarations Provide Relief for Fuel Transporters

September 01, 2017

In response to the Georgia's recent Emergency Declaration, Gov. McMaster has established an Emergency situation also exists in South Carolina with Executive Order 2017-18.  

Fuel Haulers have been granted HOS and Size and Weight relief by SC Executive Order 2017-19.  This is in response to Hurricane Harvey’s impact on the fuel supply and to ensure the uninterrupted supply of fuel.  Similar orders have also been issued in North Carolina.

The FMCSA has also issued a regional declaration for 26 states (including SC) which provides relief for fuel haulers.  More information can be found here.
