At Blue Streak, we place a great emphasis on maintaining the most current technology available. We incorporate a range of innovative solutions to help you manage your logistic and delivery needs.
From the moment you request service – via phone or through our website – to the point of delivery, we offer you complete transparency and control over your packages. Our couriers are equipped with enhanced communications systems that allow information that they record to instantly appear online for customers to monitor. Each package is scanned and logged separately, and every customer’s signature is visible.
With Blue Streak, you always know exactly where your package is.
Blue Streak is committed to offering the most advanced technology, which translates into optimum, cost-effective service for our customers. We continue to research and explore new avenues in delivery and logistics and pass the savings and convenience along to our customers.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN? LOGISTICS LEXICON
We’re starting a new series in our monthly newsletter called Logistics Lexicon to help our customers understand the acronyms, terms, and phrases they might see related to transportation, logistics, and supply chain management. Today we’ll talk about LTL.
LTL, or less than truckload, is a shipment that doesn’t require its own trailer (full truckload) to move. An LTL shipment usually contains several separate orders from multiple customers in one truck. LTL shipping is cost-effective and easier on the environment. It’s a good option for customers who have large freight to move, usually one to six pallets, that is not time sensitive.
Whether you require same-day delivery across town or across the country, Blue Streak can assist you with your LTL needs. Please contact us for more information.
FUEL SURCHARGE TO INCREASE IN APRIL
Because of an increase in fuel charges in the past month nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will increase to 7% in April. 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.
*As reported by the US Department of Energy.
