What's New at Reddaway

Adding flexibility is good for business

Woman using Reddaway websiteAs the economic recovery bumps along, adding greater flexibility to your supply chain can help you respond quickly to business opportunities when they surface and avoid the interruptions that threaten your company's profitability.

For more than 90 years, Reddaway has been helping customers by delivering flexible transportation solutions. We're built for next-day business, with higher reliability and fewer claims than any other transportation provider in our region. Whether it's for cross-town, intra-state and inter-state next-day deliveries, our comprehensive Western states network is designed to meet your delivery schedule.

Founded in 1919, Reddaway is the oldest continuously-operating motor carrier in Oregon and today provides regional delivery in 12 Western states and one Canadian province: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming and British Columbia. In addition, working with our transportation partner, we have the experience, network and equipment to make supply chains run smoothly throughout Canada, too.

Check out transit times on and discover how much flexibility Reddaway can add to your supply chain. Or call the Customer Care Group at 1-888-420-8960.

Multitask with our online bill of lading

Our updated bill of lading BOL Creation and Management page on can make your life easier while it helps ensure your shipment moves smoothly through the Reddaway system.

For example, the online bill of lading automatically assigns your PRO number, which displays on your BOL PDF document and BOL confirmation screen. The BOL is transmitted electronically into the Reddaway billing system, reducing the risk of data entry errors, which helps ensure data integrity and enhances shipment tracking throughout the life cycle of the shipment.

Also, when you create your bill of lading online, you can schedule a pickup at the same time. Check the Schedule a Pickup box at the top of the BOL creation page, and your pickup automatically is scheduled when you submit your bill of lading. This saves you time—no need to call or complete a separate online pickup request.

Continuous improvement is a way of life at Reddaway, and improvements to our online bill of lading are just the latest examples. Become a registered user at and see how we're working hard to make your life easier!

ATA claims a VMT tax would be costly to administer and enforce

truck on roadIn a recent news release, the American Trucking Associations announced it would oppose a Vehicle Miles Tax (VMT), believing the traditional system of registration fees and fuel taxes remains the most-efficient way to finance highway projects. While the passenger car market is seeing an influx of hybrid and electric technology, there currently isn't a readily available alternative to diesel fuel for over-the-road trucks.

Tips to Make Your Life Easier

Use PRO numbers like a pro

The PRO number, or progressive rotating order number, identifies your shipment as it moves through our system, helping ensure your shipment arrives at its destination on time and giving you a way to track its progress and match a shipment to an invoice.

Here are two ways to assign a PRO number to your shipment:

  1. Use the PRO stickers from the booklet that your local driver or account manager provided, affixing the pre-numbered stickers to your bill of lading and your shipment.
  2. Complete and submit an online bill of lading at to have the PRO number automatically assigned. You have a choice of a web-assigned, origin-independent "301" PRO or an origin-specific PRO you can get from your local driver or account manager. Then, just print your bill of lading and labels, remembering to affix the labels to your shipment.

To schedule your next shipment, go online to or call our Customer Care Group at 1-888-420-8960.
