March 2018 Blue’s News

NEW CUSTOMER LOGIN EFFECTIVE MARCH 1

In our continued effort to streamline your experience when doing business with Blue Streak, we have upgraded our customer service portal. The new customer account/registration web address is https://www.bluestreakcouriersonline.net/clientportal.

While our website will automatically direct users to the new address beginning March 1, we ask that you remember to update your bookmarks.

The new client portal will have the following features:

  • New format to improve readability.
  • New ability in the user profile to have the order-entry screen auto-insert a package type and count upon initial screen load.
  • New option that will allow users to send feedback.
  • New button to reduce clicks when adding packages.

We appreciate your support as we launch this improved customer portal.

 

DON’T FORGET TO SPRING FORWARD MARCH 11

Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins Sunday, March 11, 2018. The official time you should change your clocks is at 2 a.m.

Daylight Saving Time is a way of making better use of the daylight in the evenings by setting the clocks forward one hour during the longer days of summer. In the United States, the time will fall back again on November 4, 2018, when DST ends.

Since DST isn’t federally mandated; two states – Arizona and Hawaii – and four U.S. territories – American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands – don’t observe it. Indiana adopted DST in 2006.

 

DECREASE IN FUEL SURCHARGE IN MARCH

Because of a decrease in fuel charges in the past month nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will decrease to 5.0% in March. Our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.

How it’s calculated: If the national 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.
