Pre-Notification Tariff Increases effective Jan 1st 2019 - Unrelenting pressure in the labor market and the particular challenge in attracting and retaining qualified and competent drivers (as well as good dispatchers and other staff), has raised our labor costs about 25% this past year.
This, allied to significant cost increases of insurance premiums, new vehicles, technology upgrades to support the service, does unfortunately necessitate the need for an increase in general tariffs.
We have kept this as low as possible and, effective January 1st, 2019, all weight based tariffs will increase by 3.5%.
There have been a very limited number of changes in the Accessorials and Specials rates at a few of Stations and so we would encourage everyone to review for changes.
We do not take your trust or business lightly, and very much appreciate your loyalty to Special Service Freight.  Thank you.
We wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2019.

Xmas and New Year's Evening/Day Line haul schedule – The Line haul will run overnight on Sun Dec 23rd with freight available at destinations on Mon Dec 24th , and then again as normal on Wed Dec 26th  with freight availability at the local Stations on Thur morning 27th Dec.
Over New Year, the line haul will run on Sun Dec 30th with freight available at destinations Mon Dec 31st, and then again on Wed Jan 2nd with freight availability at local Stations on Thurs 3rd Jan.
Xmas and New Year's Evening/Day  Local Stations schedule - Stations will close early on Mon 24th and reopen as normal on Wed Dec 26th, and close early on Mon Dec 31st and reopen again on Wed Jan 2nd. We only run 'skeleton staff/drivers' at all locations, and most Stations will shut early expecting that many consignees will not be accepting freight as they will also be closed.  
Please confirm any expected pick ups or deliveries over this period before the start of the holidays with the appropriate Station.  

Dec 1st - Storage charges for linehaul freight not picked up on arrival - For too long local agents (many without their own facility and associated costs) have used us as a free warehouse at all locations to hold their freight coming off Linehaul until they are ready to collect it.  They come in and cherry-pick the pieces that they want that day.
With immediate effect going forward when a consignee of Linehaul ‘Hold and Notify’ freight turns up to collect freight they will be told to take all of it – or none of it, and fees applicable to the shipper will start to accrue after 48 hours sitting on our docks.
Forward Air, Accelerated, all Airlines and others require this, and now, so do we.

July 16th - MIA Facility move - Please note that our MIA team has consolidated its multi-location operations into a larger single facility at 8272 NW 21st St. Doral, FL 33122
