Busfreighter.com service alerts keep you informed of weather-related shipping interruptions.
Hazardous weather conditions sometimes cause the cancellation of Greyhound bus routes in the path of a storm, which can disrupt the scheduled delivery of packages sent through Busfeighter.com and Greyhound Package Express. When unforeseen disruptions occur, Busfreighter.com keeps our shipping customers informed by posting online service alerts.
You can find a service alert link posted at the top right-hand corner of the Busfreighter.com homepage when shipment service is affected. Click the alert to view information such as schedule delays and cancellations, the cause or weather event, a list of routes that are canceled or delayed, when the revised schedule is in effect and how it may affect shipment pick-up and delivery appointments throughout the region. We update service alerts as weather forecasts and changing bus schedules are available. Busfreighter.com works quickly to reestablish service and minimize the disruption.
Busfreighter.com Quickly Reschedules Shipments
Following a storm or weather event, Greyhound’s priority is getting passengers to their destinations and alleviating backups to the published bus schedule. This could involve filling buses and cargo areas with passengers and luggage, leaving little room for extra shipments. Because Busfreighter.com utilizes only unused cargo space, you may experience a rare delivery delay. If this occurs, we make every effort to reschedule your shipments as quickly as possible.

We recommend you contact the final delivery destination with the status of your boxes, if your shipment is delayed.
Keep Packages Safe from the Elements
While your packages are safer on our buses than the cargo trucks of other delivery companies, it’s always a good idea to protect them against weather-related damage or shipping and handling dings by packing them defensively. When packing a box, do everything you can to protect your items. Using a little extra bubble wrap or tape is less expensive than replacing it.
