WHAT DOES IT MEAN? LOGISTICS LEXICON

This month in our Logistics Lexicon series, we’re talking about Proof of Delivery (POD). A POD is a document used to establish that a shipment is received in full. It usually includes the time of delivery, full delivery address, and the name and signature of the person who accepted the shipment.

At Blue Streak, 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.

 

DRIVER ALERT: SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER

Kids everywhere are rejoicing that school is out, but this raises a safety alert for drivers. It means that there are more kids playing in the streets during the day and later into the night. It also means that there are more inexperienced drivers on the roads during these same hours as teens take advantage of summer free time. Now is the time for drivers to be more vigilant and aware of their surroundings.

 

FUEL SURCHARGE TO INCREASE IN JUNE

Because of an increase in fuel prices nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will increase to 8% in June. 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.
