During these unprecedented times we must all work together to mitigate the risks associated with providing much needed transportation services.
At ALT Services, we are instructing our drivers to "DON'T SHARE THE AIR".
Stated differently, we are asking our drivers to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by not entering the establishments that we frequent when providing pickup and delivery services. Our approach is as such...
When making pickups, we will contact the shipper and ask to a door assignment. The driver will place his trailer in the appointed door. Once his/her trailer is loaded, we ask the shipper to place the bill of lading on the rear of the trailer. Our driver will pull away from the dock when it is safe to do so. He/she will retrieve the bill of lading from the rear of the trailer, sign it and pass the shippers copies back to them from the ground at the dock door.
When making deliveries, we will contact the consignee upon arrival to the delivery location for a door assignment. The driver will place the delivery documents on the rear of the trailer. Once the material has been offloaded, we ask the consignee to put our copies of the signed delivery documents on the rear of the trailer. When it is safe to do so, our driver will pull away from the dock. He/she will then retrieve their signed copies and exit the premises.
While we are very proud of the men and women that get behind the wheel of ALT Services vehicles, we want to take these added measures to insure the heath of our employees and valued clients. If we "DON'T SHARE THE AIR" we can do our part to flatten the curve and put this nasty virus in the rear view mirror.
We thank you for your cooperation and look forward the next opportunity to be of any measure of serivce.
God bless and be well
