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.

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.

POD and Additional Services Form

The Proof of Delivery (POD) and Additional Services Form (ASF) Are Legal Documents!

You must make a note of any damages or shortages/ overages on the POD or the ASF and have the delivery driver sign them before leaving.

When you sign a POD without making these notes or sign clear on the driver’s handheld without requesting an ASF, you acknowledge that you received the freight or shipment in good order.

The carrier is no longer responsible for any damages or shortages.


Appointment Freight

What Is Appointment Freight?

Appointment Freight occurs when the customer requests, via the Bill of Lading (BOL) or other means, to establish a time and date specific Appointment, or Call and Notify the consignee as a condition before attempting delivery. Certain consignees stipulate that all carriers book appointments under all circumstances or within certain parameters. Establishing and performing Appointment Deliveries has a significant impact on our ability to provide customers with the cost effective, high-speed service performance that they have come to expect.
