Appointment Window Updates

Attention Trucking Community,

As we continue to modernize, strive to offer better service and increase our flexibility with the current volumes and changes to the lunch hour, additional appointment windows will now be offered and we will revert to a 30-minute grace period before and after.

The increase to appointment window offerings will begin on Monday, April 3rd, 2023.

Our windows will become the following: 

Transaction Types  1st Shift Windows
2nd Shift Windows

3rd Shift Windows Grace Period
 Import Pickup
 08:00-09:00
18:00-19:00
 03:00-04:00  30 min. grace period before and after appt. window

*30 minute grace period does not apply to the back half of the appointment window

*Truck drivers arriving early or late for an appointment will be turned away. Arriving outside the appointment windows can be disruptive to our service and have negative impacts on drivers who arrive on time.*
