General Increase

September 22nd, 2020

Dear Valued Oak Harbor Freight Lines Customer:

We are grateful for your business and, more importantly, for your valued trust and confidence in allowing Oak Harbor Freight Lines to provide solutions for your freight transportation needs. We strive daily to bring peace of mind to you and your customers by providing consistent, high quality service with employees that continue to set the benchmark for professionalism and customer service within our industry. We hope your experience with Oak Harbor Freight Lines is an enjoyable one, and one that helps make you more competitive, more profitable, and makes you feel more like family every day.

Although the cost of doing business continues to rise, we consistently strive to keep costs down as much as possible. In order to continue to meet and exceed your needs, we must be able to enhance our service network and keep up with industry specific cost pressures based upon ever rising healthcare costs, increased traffic congestion, regulations and capacity, and the cost of keeping our employees safe and healthy during this difficult time.

Effective September 28th, 2020 we will be revising our general rates and charges to help offset the economic impact of rising costs across the transportation industry, including: new equipment, terminal expansion, technology investments, healthcare, regulations/taxes, and competitive employee wages.

Our general rates and charges will increase by 4.9%, although the effect on specific lanes and shipments may vary. Individually negotiated floor minimum charges will increase by $2.00 on direct points and by $2.00 on indirect points.

The OAKH 500 (9/28/2020 level) rates will be available for download from our website at no later than Friday, September 25th, 2020. We encourage you to take advantage of this service by downloading our new rate levels.

From our Oak Harbor Freight Lines family to yours, we truly value our relationship with you, and look forward to continuing to prove our worthiness of your continued loyalty and dedication.

In the past week, governments in the western United States, in an effort to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, have issued orders closing certain businesses and restricting gatherings and movement of people. All of those orders thus far have recognized that supply chains are critical to public health and safety, and so have allowed freight companies like Oak Harbor to continue operations. In these challenging times, we are committed to providing peace of mind by remaining open and delivering freight to customers who are able to accept deliveries.
