Hurricane Florence made landfall this morning near Wilmington, N.C., as a Category 1 storm. In advance of the storm, the ports of Charleston and Wilmington closed, and truckload spot rates surged, though rates will probably return to normal levels as the weather clears due to the proximity of Atlanta's distribution centers.
