These times are challenging, but at Paul’s Transport we are full wheels in motion and trucking through this unprecedented economic shift. We have implemented and continue to promote all recommendations by Health Canada to protect our drivers, employees, customers and all our partners. Furthermore, we are operating under our business continuity plan to ensure we are ready for any sudden changes and can continue to move forward with the service levels we have all come to expect from Paul’s Transport.

We advised all our critical supply chain partners about changes to the treatment of paperwork like PODs that are often exchanged between our drivers and the staff at our supply chains. Our drivers and supply chain partners are all on the frontlines of this virus, and we need to include additional measures to mitigate the risk of exposure.
To facilitate this change, we have instructed all drivers to follow the below procedures:
We understand that signatures are a control many of you may use to validate information, however we are asking you to work with our drivers to ensure everyone stays as safe as possible.
Paul’s transport has invested into sophisticated technology that allows us to embed the latitude and longitude of the driver’s location along with the container number into the picture taken by the driver. There is a link that will direct you to a google map image of that exact location. This document can be requested at any time if there are any uncertainties or discrepancies in your delivery. Please email email@example.com to request this document, or anyone at Paul’s Transport you normally work with.

Paul’s Transport has recently installed dash cameras on every truck. We have the capabilities of retrieving footage of any trip indefinitely and use this as a tool to maintain our impeccable safety rating. As things have changed drastically with COVID-19 and our elimination of signed PODS, we can provide you with this footage if there is ever a dispute with your delivery. The footage consists of staggered pictures taken in 5-minute intervals, and when played, would show you the overall trip of your container. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns with your deliveries.
