Getting Back to Work After COVID19

April 24, 2020

Hello & Warm Regards from, Jane Barnett, The Shipping Emporium.

All your businesses have been impacted by the COVD19 and our thoughts go out to anyone who’s Family or Friends have been impacted by the COVID19.

you need us more than ever to help plan your Logistics & to book your Domestic Freight for when you are required to ship LTL or TL Freight. Carrier services are considered “Essential Business’ ” in all states however some of your pick up and delivery locations (in many states) have been closed or have been open only on a limited basis.

 Here are some suggestions for making your Freight shipping easier, now or any time as we will all (hopefully) get back to business as usual this summer.

  1. Early summer (May, June, and perhaps July) is expected to be more busy & hectic for carriers as businesses and government institutions are planning to get back to work- and there will be many requests for pick ups and deliveries all at the same time due to “pent up demand”. Please plan and ahead and please be patient.
  2. Also remember that Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays (Memorial Day or 4th or July, and sometimes the days before or after Major Holidays are not counted in the number of transit days.
  3. We can help you to call – or you can call to check ahead of time for your delivery location, to be sure that they are open at their docks for receiving or if there are any shorter hours as a result of the COVID19 Pandemic

A short-list of what my company, The Shipping Emporium can do for you:

  1.  BOL Creation and changes.
  2. Dispatch and scheduling.
  3. Invoice Auditing and extra phone calls or inquiries to you and to the dispatcher if needed.
  4. We can assist when you are sending unusual or haz-mat, including batteries.
  5. Verify delivery appointments.

We sure hope that we can help your company or agency with your next Freight order!
