The Saddle Creek logistics firm that got the worst of the storm is closing up shop
The Saddled Creek logistics company that got hit hard by Hurricane Harvey is closing its doors.
The company’s website says the shutdown is being done “due to a lack of capacity.”
The news comes after two weeks of criticism by the business community and the media over Saddled’s handling of Hurricane Harvey.
The firm said in a statement that the closure was necessary due to the increased volume of shipments being shipped from Houston to other states.
The company’s announcement comes as the city of Houston is considering new rules for businesses to handle evacuations.
In a report on Tuesday, the city said the rules could include requiring companies to post signs and keep track of the total number of people who are expected to arrive in their communities.
In a statement, the company said it’s not aware of any changes in the rules.
