Social Distancing Means We Are Working Harder & Safer for You
Essential Services for Responsive Package Delivery in the times COVID-19
It’s the big elephant in the room. As a nation we are strong enough to withstand it.Package Delivery Response by couriers is an Essential Social Distancing Solution for your needs. We have taken the CDC Precautions to heart. They are used by every driver to keep everyone healthy. Additionally, we delivery medical shipments nationwide that include blood, pathogens for vaccines, specimens and devices to medical institutions. Below are the responsive delivery steps we are taking as an Essential Service provider.
USA Couriers carry cleaning and sanitizing products in their vehicles. Between every delivery and pick up, they are responsibly following the CDC Guidelines. Plus, sanitizing their cars & trucks.
Every day couriers are screened for COVID-19 symptoms. Weekly we request they complete the CDC Self-Checker for Certification of Health. No one with a cough, fever over 100.4 or difficulty breathing can work.
The unfortunate awareness that if one courier tests positive, an entire team may need to self isolate if not immunized. Before the immunizations were an option, offices could have to close for the 14 days. When this happens, we adapt, pulling couriers in from other area’s – hopefully nearby. There is also the fact that there are fewer couriers. We have seen many close close their doors – choosing retirement, sickness, death. It has been a tragic time for everyone.
At each step of the delivery process human contact is avoided. Our couriers let you know they are present, will pick up the item and deliver it to a location (desk, outside door). The courier will ask for the consignee’s name and enter it into our Proof of Delivery system. Photos may also me taken of delivery site.
