Delivery company prepares for snow in California

Delivery companies that provide transport of time sensitive shipments in California, have it pretty easy compared to their counterparts in other parts of the U.S.

Our challenges are usually related to traffic, traffic bottlenecks caused by bridges or toll booths and the distance between pick up and delivery destination (California is a big state!).

It’s not unusual for us to get no rain after the month of May and before October, or even November.  But when it does rain, it also brings another challenge, which is snow.

The most likely areas of California to have snow related road closures or delays are the Sierra Mountains between Nevada and California and the Grapevine (I-5 north of LA and south of Bakersfield), I-5 north of Redding to the Oregon state border and in Southern California, the road and highways in the San Bernardino mountains.

Ask your transportation provider what there plans are this winter.  If they don’t have one, you should consider checking around for a more prepared company to transport your time sensitive shipments.

CA Logistics Companies offer unique shipping solutions

Regional Delivery, Courier and Logistics companies like HB Express provide unique services not offered by the giant nationwide and international shipping companies like UPS, Fedex and of course, USPS.

When the national and international shippers do provide custom regional shipping services, they are usually outsourcing it to smaller, regional couriers or shippers.

Pallet pickup and delivery, resorting, warehouse distribution, driver staffing and same day delivery service are examples of the types of service that are best served by regional couriers and delivery companies.

For TSA couriers, medical couriers, phamacy courier service and regional auto parts deliveries, regional courier companies are also the most efficient and cost effective.

HB Express can provide you with a no-obligation quote for any of the aforementioned services.  Call (800) 690-6410 or email at

Should you hire a courier that uses independent contractors?

Unfortunately, companies today looking to save money, are taking advantage of couriers for their distribution needs, who use independent contractors (IC’s).

Use of independent contractors by courier companies is a no-brainer for companies who are looking to make a quick buck at the expense of the drivers.  No workers compensation, no unemployment insurance and you can run the drivers into overtime with no extra money being paid.

California EDD, the US Department of Labor and the IRS might have a different take on this issue.

If you and your company needs transport services and want to avoid the pitfalls that Uber, Amazon and many courier companies who misuse IC’s are having, contact HB Express and I can provide you with a no-obligation, competitive quote based on your delivery specifications.
