PRESIDENTS DAY

Blue Streak Couriers will provide normal routed and scheduled service on Monday, February 17, 2014. If your office will be closed and not require normally scheduled service this day, please email us.

A BIT OF HISTORY

Presidents Day is actually officially called Washington’s Birthday and is a federal holiday. Through the years there has been legislation proposed to change the name to Presidents Day because the holiday falls between Lincoln’s birthday (February 12) and Washington’s birthday (February 22), but the law has yet to be passed. Every year since 1896, the United States Senate has observed Washington’s Birthday by selecting one of its members, alternating parties, to read Washington’s Farewell Address in legislative session.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Blue Streak would like to say congratulations to our CEO Harold Boyett. He’s been our fearless leader for nine years and in that time, has transformed Blue Streak into the thriving, innovative, nationally known company that it is today. Thank you for your dedication and hard work, Harold!

FUEL SURCHARGE TO DECREASE FOR FEBRUARY

Because of a decrease in fuel prices across the country last month, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will decrease to 9.5% for February. With this, our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.

How it’s calculated: If the average price* of regular, unleaded fuel is above $1.79 during the last week of any given month, the surcharge will be in effect on the first day of the following month.

*as reported for the state of Florida, regular gas, all formulations, on the United States Department of Energy website: US Department of Energy
