Busfreighter.com is Focused on Safe and Secure Shipping

Greyhound invests in 1,200-vehicle fleet, providing new, improved and secure transport.

When the Transportation and Safety Administration (TSA) expresses concern about the security level of America’s transportation infrastructure, Greyhound takes immediate action to improve security procedures for their transport operation.

The company upgrades 85% of the 1,200-vehicle fleet with driver cock-pits (like those on airplanes), GPS bus tracking and three-point passenger safety belts – and the transition to new or refurbished buses continues. With a maximum passenger limit of 55 per bus, security is already more manageable than on an airplane. Installing greener engines with lower carbon emissions helps Greyhound and Busfreighter.com keep ticket and shipping costs low.

Safely Delivering Packages and Passengers

After 100 years of traveling America’s highways, we know how to leverage computer power to protect our buses and route system, which do not depend on computer automation like our nation’s ship terminals or airports. Busfreighter.com and Greyhound personnel keep the human touch present in our day to day operations.

Every year, Busfreighter.com and Greyhound deliver close to 2.2 million packages and 18 million passengers across 48 states and to 3,800 destinations. Our top priority is the protection of shipments and people riding the bus. With security on everyone’s mind, Busfreighter.com suggests action you can take to protect your packages before sending them on their journey.

8 Ways to Secure Your Items Before Shipping

  • Leave the box unsealed – This allows Greyhound agents who receive your package to conduct a random check if needed. Bring packing tape to reseal your box.
  • Let Greyhound load your boxes – Once checked in, the GPX agent or the bus driver will load your packages into the correct bus cargo space.
  • Keep an eye on all packages – As you do at the airport, never leave your boxes unattended.
  • Include the total number boxes on labels – For multiple packages, label them box 1 of 6, box 2 of 6 and so on. It will help GPX agents identify the number of items in your order.
  • Place information inside – Put a copy of the shipping or packing list (with your contact information) inside the box. It can help if the outside label is damaged or removed.
  • Insure packages – This helps with tracking a misdirected box and protects you in case they are lost or stolen.
  • Keep wrapping simple – If you are shipping something in its original box, consider wrapping it again in packing paper. The nondescript packaging does not draw attention.
  • Consider door-to-door service – The convenience of courier pick-up and delivery allows you to keep track of your boxes from start to finish.
