Peak Season Surcharge Extended

February 1, 2021

As we all know, the cost of continuing business during the COVID-19 Pandemic has continued to rise. Due to the unpredictability in the market and the consistency of higher truck costs, we find it necessary to extend our Peak Season surcharge past our anticipated end date. This will now be renamed a Capacity Surcharge.
 
With this in mind, American Linehaul will extend the $5.00 per HWB surcharge until further notice. This not a pernament surcharge and will be relieved once the cost of purchase transportation levels out.
 
We appreciate your understanding and support through these unprecedented times.

American Linehaul LAX Team Member & Family

The American Linehaul family lost a member of it’s LAX Team when David Rubio passed away due to Covid-19 on January 6. He was a local driver in Los Angeles and well-loved by his coworkers. It is said that he was a “teddy bear” and a very vibrant person, with an amazing sense of humor, and one-of-a-kind loud laugh. He will be missed by everyone who’s lives he touched.

Prior to his illness, David had left the country to travel to Mexico to care for his father, David Sr., who passed away from Covid-19 on January 1. It was there that he contracted Covid-19. His daughter, Alizay, who is 12 years old and lives in Los Angeles, also has Covid-19 and is currently hospitalized in Guadalajara on a ventilator.  Their family is raising funds to cover Alizay’s medical bills and her immediate transfer to a more equipped hospital in Guadalajara.

If you are interested in supporting this cause, please use the link provided below. Thank you for your consideration.

UPDATE:
Per her Go Fund Me page:
We received some great news from the Rubio family! Alizay’s condition has improved, and she has finally been taken off the ventilator and out of the medically induced coma. She woke up today and was able to spend much needed time with her mom, Patty. We are hoping that Alizay continues to gain strength so she can be moved out of the COVID ward in the coming days.
We are cautiously very very hopeful because we know how strong and courageous Alizay is!
Please keep continuing to send love and light and prayers her way!  
Thank you all for your support!

To our valued American Linehaul Service Partners and Vendors,

As a result of the current situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, until further notice, ALC is suspending requirements for physical/hardcopy proof of delivery signatures (PODs).  Verbal confirmation of the recipient’s identification (first and last name as shown on Drivers License) and entry of this information in the ALC database will be substituted for a physical signature.  This suspension is part of ALC’s efforts to combat the spread of this deadly disease by following social distancing recommendations from medical and governmental communities.

Thank you and please stay safe.

COVID-19 Outbreak Update

Updated 3 20 2020

America Linehaul (ALC) understands that there is a tremendous amount of concern associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our thoughts are with everyone who may be suffering. Our company hopes for a quick recovery of those affected, and for a swift dissipation of this global illness, as does the rest of the world.

Maintaining the health and safety of our team is critical to the success of continuing to provide you with American Linehaul’s services. We are closely following developments put out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and by state and local offices around COVID-19 and are actively looking for ways to minimize exposure to our team members and to limit its impact on our customers.

We do not expect to see a lapse(s) in service; however, if we do encounter challenges that may delay or limit service, we will communicate them to our customers.

This will be updated daily on the American Linehaul website in another subsequent memo.

What ALC is doing to lower the exposure to our team members and our customers:

  • Implemented a no-visitor/ vendor policy within our internal American Linehaul office space. We will require hand sanitizer is used at all driver paperwork stations as well as upon entering the dispatch space.
  • Communicating daily with our agent partner network to ensure that they are following strict COVID-19 safety guidelines in order to avoid any disruption to our network.
  • Keeping our facilities and work areas clean and wiping down frequently touched areas on a regular basis. Increase frequency of cleaning services to deep clean office space.
  • Wiping down equipment before and after shifts.
  • Instructing our team members to wash/sanitizer their hands regularly.
  • Suspension of all non-essential business travel.
  • Employees who are not feeling well or have immediate family members who are not feeling well have been instructed to stay home and not return until they are able to provide a doctor’s note.
  • Monitoring of supplies necessary in order to limit exposure and spread of COVID-19, which include restocking disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, soap, etc.
  • Suspension of the use of the Signature Capture on our scanning devices. This will prevent multiple users touching the scanning device throughout the course of a shift. We recommend drivers bring their own pens with them. American Linehaul has been operating with a dual POD system with both paper and scanned. This will not affect the operation as we have been using a dual paper POD already.
  • Suspension of requirements for physical/hardcopy proof of delivery signatures (PODs).

We value our customers and our team members. We thank you for your patience as we navigate the challenges of the situation.
