COVID – 19 Pickup and Delivery Guidelines
Fort Transportation is abiding by federal guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding “Social Distancing” to protect employees and others from potential exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This will be in effect until the CDC changes its “Social Distancing” guidelines that were issued on March 18, 2020. The guidelines establish a safe and social distance of 6 to 10 feet between individuals. In lieu of signed bill of ladings and delivery receipt our drivers will be logging the name of the representative of the shipper or consignee, the date, time and any visible damage, shortage or other exceptions on bill of lading or delivery receipt. The driver will leave a copy of the bill of lading. The driver will place a copy of the delivery receipt on top of the delivered freight. The driver will also enter the name, date, time and upload a photograph of any damaged shipment into Fort Transportation’s TMS. Fort Transportation will verify delivery locations by GPS tracking. Fort Transportation will continue this process until the Center for Disease Control (CDC) changes its “Social Distancing” guidelines.
