ALC Service Resumes Monday 12/28/2020

Dec 24, 2020 1:40:21 PM EST

Your friends at American Linehaul first and foremost wish you a wonderful holiday season. What a wild ride 2020 has been… even the end of it seemed fitting given the circumstances of this year!

We are happy to report that our stations are back to operating under normal conditions and will be ready to go when we resume operations on Monday, December 28, 2020 following the Christmas holidays.

As you can imagine, the influx of freight we received in our system caused much turmoil in all departments despite our best efforts to control these additional levels of freight.  We appreciate your patience while we tried our best to maximize the service we were able to provide to you as well as preserve the sancitity of our network. Limiting freight was a difficult decision to make – saying no to our customers is something we’re not used to!

Thank you for your continued patience. Our stations and customer service department have been working around the clock to ensure that your shipments arrive at destination and that you get the answers you need.

We look forward to starting fresh on Monday and moving towards an optimistic New Year!

Happy Holidays,
American Linehaul

Revised Procedure for Physical/Hardcopy Delivery Signatures

ALERT – Mar 20, 2020 5:37:47 PM EST

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.

The safety and wellbeing of your employees and our Operations teams is our number one priority.  We very much appreciate the services you provide to American Linehaul Corporation.

Thank you and please stay safe.

Maxine Feimer
Director of Operations, Northeast Region

COVID-19 Outbreak Update

ALERT – Mar 12, 2020 8:06:48 PM EST

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 believe that we have a responsibility to our team, our customers, and the industry to continue operations during these types of events. All ALC facilities will continue to follow normal hours of operation. We expect to provide the same quality service to our customers as we always have. 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.

Please contact American Linehaul’s COVID-19 Task Force directly at covid19@americanlc.com.

On behalf of all of us at ALC, thank you for understanding the challenges that we are all facing. Please keep yourself and loved ones safe during this time.
