To our valued clients,
I would like to take a minute to THANK YOU for allowing us to continue to serve you and your companies for 23 years.
Many things changed in the trucking industry in 2018. We are experiencing a driver shortage which has increased our driver pay and benefits expense, and the Electronic Logging Device mandate has increased our technology expense. We have also upgraded our fleet to newer equipment to better serve our clients and to make sure we don’t experience any downtime in getting your freight where it needs to be. The last time we adjusted pricing was in 2013, six years ago.
We have developed an exciting new tool that will be on our website in the coming weeks where you can put in the city you are picking up from, the city you are going to, the pallet count, and the service you would like and it will automatically figure a rate for you. No more crazy grids straining your eyes while you are trying to find a rate for your move.
Effective February 1, 2019, we will be implementing a pricing adjustment which you will be able to find on the Local Rate Calculator. Some lanes have increased, some have decreased and some remain unchanged. Please check out the NEW rate calculator at the following page on our website: https://shotgunexpressinc.com/local-trucking-rates-minneapolis-st-paul/
You will also find updated fuel surcharge pricing, hourly dock truck, and semi-trailer pricing and accessorial pricing.
Please contact myself or Beth if you have any questions related to the new rates or the website.
THANK YOU again for your continued support and investment in our company, we look forward to serving you for many years to come.
