LLNJ Delivery - TForce Final Mile

Update #4

May 14, 2018

Please share this with all staff involved with ILL/delivery.



Blue Bins

  • All bins are in circulation. TForce depots need blue bins in order to sort/deliver materials
  • If your library has extra blue bins, please leave these for the driver to take. Label them with a sign marked “Please take”
  • If your library has a lot of extra bins, expect that it make take up to a week for drivers to take all of them
  • We have ordered more blue bins and TForce will fill bin requests as soon as they are available


  • We worked with TForce and have added route numbers to all the delivery labels. This will help with sorting accuracy. Please discard all labels printed without route numbers. Labels may be printed in color or black-and-white
  • Please consider including a return label with each item shipped. This will save time and make the returns process smoother for the borrowing library

School Delivery: Summer Break

  • School delivery will end on Friday, June 15, 2018 and resume the week of Monday, September 10th, 2018

Academic Libraries: Summer Schedule Changes

  • Will you be shifting to a new summer schedule that may impact delivery? If so, please fill out the Library Closure form as soon as possible.


TForce Asks Your Help with Following

  • Make sure the driver signs your library’s LibraryLinkNJ daily delivery log sheet. This is a new procedure for many of the drivers
  • When the driver presents their TForce route log to your staff member, please make sure your staff member prints a clear and legible name
  • Both of these procedures help TForce monitor driver performance and delivery accuracy

Insurance Claims:

  • Expak
    • LibraryLinkNJ’s contract with Expak allowed for payment up to $100 for loss or damage to materials in the care of Expak
