General Increase

October 1, 2019

Dear Valued Oak Harbor Freight Lines Customer:

We are grateful for your business and for your 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 professional employees. We hope your experience with Oak Harbor Freight Lines is enjoyable and one that helps make you more competitive and profitable.

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. Effective October 7, 2019 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.

General rates and charges will increase by 5.9%, although the effect on specific lanes and shipments may vary. Individually negotiated floor minimum charges will increase $2.00 on direct points and $2.00 on indirect points.

The OAKH 500 (10/7/2019 level) rates will be available for download from our website at no later than Friday, October 4, 2019. We encourage you to take advantage of this service by downloading our new rate level.

We value our relationship with you and look forward to proving our worthiness of your continued loyalty.

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.
