Have you seen our new website?

In our latest blog, we talked about how part of staying up with consumer demands for our industry also means doing our best to communicate with all our stakeholders. For us, this included getting a new website recently. 

Our new website gives a better, more updated explanation of how we serve our customers through our service pages. It also continues to offer insights into our company and our industry through links to our monthly newsletter and weekly blogs. 

So what's different? In addition to a more polished look, our website has two new features we are excited to share with our customers and consignees.

Instead of pre-selected testimonials, we now offer the ability to rate us on Google and those reviews show up on our website. This allows the viewer real-time reviews from people we've worked with recently. We are also pleased to share the My Delivery page, which allows consignees to easily check on the status of their deliveries that are being handled by On Time Logistics. 

We love our new website and hope you take the opportunity to look through it and learn more about how we work to make deliveries more efficient and customer-friendly. 


Safety Bulletin: 
5 Ways Drivers Can Avoid Heat-Related Illnesses

(Article Courtesy Penske) 
Much of the country has already experienced its first 90-degree day, and summer is just getting started. While the sun may be brutal outside, inside your cab, it can get downright dangerous.

Consider: On an 80-degree day, your cab’s interior can reach 99 degrees in just 10 minutes and 114 degrees in 30 minutes. On a 90-degree day, your cab’s interior can reach 109 degrees in just 10 minutes and 124 degrees in 30 minutes. (Source:

Simply put: The hotter it gets outside, the warmer it gets inside your cab. If you don’t find a way to stay cool, you could develop one of three heat-related health conditions:
  • Heat Cramps: Typically, the first signs of a heat-related illness, heat cramps are painful, involuntary muscle spasms most often caused when your body loses water and electrolytes through sweating. They usually occur during heavy exercise in hot environments. The spasms may be more intense and last longer than typical nighttime leg cramps.
  • Heat exhaustion: This second form of heat illness happens when your body loses larger amounts of water through sweating. Signs can include heavy sweating, clammy skin, a fast and weak heart rate, nausea or vomiting, muscle cramps, fatigue, dizziness, headache, or passing out.
  • Heatstroke: This is the most serious form of heat illness and can cause brain damage if left unchecked. It happens when your body can no longer control its temperature. Symptoms include a fever of 103 degrees or higher, an inability to sweat, dry and red skin, a racing pulse, dizziness, nausea, confusion, and passing out.
Reduce your risk for heat-related illness
Follow these five tips:
  1. Hydrate regularly. Drink water or a sports drink with electrolytes. Avoid coffee, soda or other drinks with caffeine, which may dehydrate you. Know your body and increase your fluid intake as your activity levels increase.
  2. Look for cool places to rest and stop. Anti-idling laws in some states prevent you from sleeping with the air-conditioning (A/C) on. Seek shaded spots or park at a rest stop that has A/C so you can head inside to cool off.
  3. Wrap a cool, wet towel around your neck to cool down. Put it back in your rig’s fridge when you aren’t using it to keep it cold.
  4. Wear loose-fitting, light-colored, lightweight clothing so your skin can sweat and your body can remove excess moisture.
  5. Wear sunscreen. Apply it regularly to avoid “trucker’s arm” — a sunburn on your left arm, where it rests by the window. Any case of sunburn can make it harder for your body to regulate its own temperature.
If you notice the signs of heatstroke or exhaustion, stop what you’re doing immediately, loosen all clothing and get to a cool, shaded area — fast. If your body temperature reaches 104, call 911.
