Tropical Storm Krosa – 15th August 2019


Severe Tropical Storm Krosa, (classified one notch below a typhoon) made landfall this afternoon on the southern island of Shikoku and is currently moving in a north-westerly direction towards the Sea of Japan.

Heavy rains and strong winds up to 60mph have resulted in the evacuation of 400,000 people. Train services are heavily disrupted and highways have been closed due to the increased risk of floods and mudslides.

Following official warnings 700 flights have been cancelled and our facilities in Osaka and Kansai International Airport are currently closed.

All services are currently suspended in the west of Japan with no collections or deliveries in Kyoto and Kobe.

Contingency are in place to minimise disruption. However, the delivery times to some destinations may be extended by one day.

As the tropical moves across land the winds will lessen and we expect normal service to resume tomorrow.

We will provide further updates when the information is available.
