Estes has added the below item to their rules tariff for the duration of the COVID pandemic:
SPECIAL PROCEDURES DURING THE CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY
- “Social distancing” is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness. Staying at least six feet away from other people lessens your chances of catching COVID-19. In order to comply with Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) policy guidelines regarding “Social Distancing” and to protect Shippers, Consignees, Employees and others from potential exposure to the coronavirus during the COVID-19 emergency, Carrier will not require signed delivery receipts. Instead, drivers will be logging the date and time of the delivery, the place of delivery, the name of the individual who received the shipment, and will also be taking a photograph of the delivered shipment which includes a date and time stamp as proof of delivery. These procedures will also apply to Item 535.
