COVID-19, the Coronavirus, is presenting some challenges in the LTL world that shippers need to be aware of.
Some changes include:
- No drivers on the dock for loading / unloading
- No signature deliveries
- Automatic return to shipper of freight (with charges) destined to closed consignees
- No guaranteed services
- the carriers will accept your guaranteed shipment but there’s no refund for service failures
The LTL carriers are reacting to the current pressures. Expect more changes.
Here at Fenichey we are trying to stay on top of the changes. If you have any questions, please ask your rep. Its much safer for your wallet if we get all the information before shipping
