General Rate Increase (May 1, 2023)

Dear Valued Oak Harbor Freight Lines Customer:

Thank you for your business and for allowing Oak Harbor Freight Lines the opportunity to provide solutions for your freight transportation needs. It’s our goal 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 consistently strive to keep costs down as much as possible. However, to continue to meet the needs of our customers, we must be able to enhance our service network and keep up with industry specific cost pressures based upon ever rising equipment costs and shortages, increased traffic congestion, regulations, and capacity.

Effective May 1, 2023 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. Floor minimum charges within our Core territory will increase by $1.50 on both direct and indirect points.

The OAKH 500 (5/1/2023 level) rates will be available for download from our website at no later than Friday, April 28th, 2023. 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 will continue to bring Peace of Mind for you and your customers and are thankful for your continued loyalty and dedication.

Oak Harbor Freight Lines, Inc.
