Sanitation Precautions

The health and safety of our customers and team members has always been our first priority. In addition to following all CDC sanitation recommendations, we have adopted the additional sanitation procedures:

  1. Upon the completion of all pick-up’s and deliveries drivers will not require a signature, and will instead ask for a first and last name. The name will be entered into our system. The shipping party, receiving party, and driver will be given a hard copy of the delivery ticket.
  2. Drivers will conduct a self-screen before coming into work. If a driver has symptoms, they will not come into work.
  3. Drivers will utilize hand sanitizer before and after every delivery.
  4. Drivers will maintain an appropriate social distance (6ft).
  5. Drivers will avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth, and will cover nose & mouth with elbow when coughing or sneezing.

We will monitor and adjust these procedures as necessary. Please call (713) 779-7363 or email us at info@riveroakscouriers.com with any specific requests or questions you may have.
