LOGISTICS LEXICON

This month in our Logistics Lexicon series, we’re talking about dedicated drivers. Hiring a dedicated driver can reduce financial exposure for your business by minimizing operating costs, including the cost of insurance. It can also minimize your exposure to lawsuits resulting from automobile accidents. A dedicated driver can increase productivity within your company and allows your employees to focus on your core competencies.

If your business model includes the use of your own drivers and vehicles, we can help you facilitate this thorough our dedicated driver program. We can replace or complement your current fleet with professional vehicles and experienced, polite, friendly, and professional delivery drivers. Our drivers will wear your uniform and represent your company to your customers.

If your business is seasonal or fluctuates throughout the year, we can also provide the necessary resources needed to service your customers to help you attain your operational and customer service goals. This type of service is designed for customers who want flexibility. If you need part-time, back-up, or supplemental drivers, we can provide dedicated, professional drivers who act as an extension of your business.

Please contact us today to learn more about how we can create a customized, dedicated solution for you.

 

FUEL SURCHARGE TO INCREASE IN OCTOBER

Because of an increase in fuel charges in the past month nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will increase to 9% in October. 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.
