Since the beginning of 2015 we at Gordon Delivery have had the goal of creating good working conditions in an industry that has often built upon several layers of subcontractors where drivers have not had appropriate working conditions. We set requirements for our partners to provide good working conditions and we collaborate with Cool Company, which provides employees and staff for Gordon’s assignments.

Five frequently asked questions to Cool Company
Can I accept assignments from other companies at the same time?
Absolutely. As a driver you yourself choose what assignments you do and which companies you do them for.
Who is responsible if an accident happens while I am doing an assignment?
Cool Company has full employer responsibility. All drivers are insured by, among other policies, TFO accident insurance that applies if anyone is injured on the job or on the way to or from work. If a person is injured on an assignment from Gordon, Cool Company is responsible for dealing with the injury. Gordon is responsible for traffic and car damage to vehicles.
Can I get sick pay?
Yes, you are entitled to sick pay under the Sick Pay Act.
What happens if a work session extends for longer than expected?
All drivers are paid for the time the assignment actually takes. If any delays occur, payment is made for the entire time worked.
What support will I receive as a driver while I am working?
At every refrigeration facility or place where a work session starts and ends, there is a manager on site for help and support. During the route, Gordon Delivery always has a driver support line open that you can call to get help quickly.
