Procedures

Billing - In all cases, Standard Transportation Services will bill the shipper for the transportation charges. This will eliminate the problem of the shipper receiving statements from numerous carriers and the possibility of confusion.

Required Paperwork - Before we are able to process your freight bill for payment, we must have a copy of the signed bill of lading indicating proof of delivery, along with your freight invoice. Any freight bills that do not have the correct supporting documents will be returned for attachment of the correct paperwork.

Payment - Remittance will be made to the carrier within 30 days from the date of our receipt of the carrier's freight bill and the accompanying proof of delivery. Carrier's payment is guaranteed whether the shipper has paid Standard Transportation or not.

Advances - Driver advances are the responsibility of the carrier. Standard Transportation does not provide, nor are we set up to provide for driver advances.

Billing Mileage - Standard Transportation is a subscriber to PC Miler. All mileages quoted are figured utilizing this computerized system.

Rates - The rate which we quote to the carrier is the amount which will be payable to the truck. Our commission is collected from the shipper and is not deducted from the carrier's revenue.
