Collect mail and cargo now

| 06/11/2008

(CNS): The Cayman Islands Postal Service says that now the Cayman Islands Hazard Management Committee has declared a hurricane watch, it is the time to collect mail and parcels. And the Port Authority advises members of the public who have cargo and vehicles at the distribution centre, dock facility or warehouse, to collect their items.

The Postal Service says that since it has to secure every piece of mail, letters and parcels are put away in a safe location once Government Offices are given permission to close and it is too late then to collect your mail or parcels.

Once government offices close, Postal Service employees are putting away the mail for safekeeping and it is too late to collect your mail or parcels. However, customers are asked to note that all post offices will keep regular operating hours until the Chief Secretary gives permission for Government Offices to close.

And don’t forget to put your post office box key somewhere safe, the Postal Service says.

The Port Authority, meanwhile, reminds the public that it is not responsible for loss or damage to freight on or in its facilities.

All Port Authority locations will close at 2:30 pm today (Thursday). Normal night operations will resume at 6:00 pm. The Cargo Distribution Centre will open tomorrow at 8:00 am. Any early closures will be advised later.
