Best Managed Companies - 2015 Platinum

Day & Ross Goes Platinum – Again!

The Day & Ross Transportation Group is proud to have re-qualified to retain its coveted platinum status in Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

The program is the country’s leading business awards program and platinum status is awarded after a company has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for seven years in row. However, each year the company must re-qualify in order to maintain its status. Day & Ross is proud to have been recognized every year since 2005.


Firearms and Ammunition Shipments

Mandatory Chain of Signature (COS) - Shipping Requirements for Firearms and Ammunition

All shipments containing firearms or ammunition require a Chain of Signature (COS) document, as per Government Regulations and Day & Ross Freight. Failure to provide the appropriate documentation may result in Day & Ross refusing your shipment.

How to Use the Points Guide

Basing Points and the Published Points Guide

Unless otherwise specified, any point based or associated with a Basing Point shall take the same rate application as that Basing Point.

For example, Dieppe, New Brunswick, for which the delivery terminal is Moncton (MTN), is associated with Moncton, NB. Therefore, the rates and charges in all Day & Ross tariffs applying for Moncton will also apply for Dieppe.
