The 10 Factors You Should Look Out For When Hiring A Milk Transport Company
Choosing a food transportation company is not easy. Especially when looking for a milk transport company, your selection should be based on the trucks available, the drivers, and most importantly, the speed of service. There are a lot of ways to get the service that is required and you must walk through the steps below to get a result that will be most beneficial to your business.
Ask yourself the following questions that entail how the milk will arrive, what is the schedule you need to be on, and how frequent are the number of deliveries you need in a week. The below factors should help you understand how All-freight works.
1. What Does The Milk Transport Company Do?
We at All-Freight are there to help you get a proper truck for each milk delivery. You need the milk delivered in a refrigerated state, and it must be delivered in the right vessels. Consider how many ways there are to store milk, and check on how many vessels you could have delivered to your location at one time. The delivery order should include a specific delivery location, and the driver will show up on time, ready to unload, and they would be knowledgeable about how to unload the product.
2. Refrigeration Trucks
A refrigerated truck is not just a cold space where you keep things until they are delivered. You must contact us to ask for the specific type of refrigeration that is required. You have the opportunity to customize the delivery and must have a word with the people on our staff who can write up your delivery order. You should create an order with the help of our staff and must have a chat with them about how they would build your delivery. The milk that you receive must come from a specific place that you chose long in advance, and it must be picked up at a specific time so you receive it fresh. The refrigeration truck is set to the right temperature, and you will be given a log of the delivery to show that the milk was transported safely.
3. Health Regulations
Health regulations must be followed when you are working with a milk transport company. These companies must follow all guidelines governing how milk is supposed to be shipped. Different types of milk must be shipped in different ways, and you must have the assurance that the company and driver have done what needs to be done to help them save time and energy. You need to have the paperwork in case you are audited for the deliveries that you have taken, and you might find that the health regulations are difficult to follow unless you have a professional driver service your account.
4. Safe Drivers
The drivers that bring your milk to your location will do so in the safest manner possible. They follow all speed limits and use all the proper truck routes when hoping to reach your location. They keep logs of all the things that you have on the truck and will be careful when they come to your location. The truck driver will follow all your safety regulations and will speak to you about how they can safely unload everything on the truck.
The unloading process is done with the help of the driver who comes to your location. Be certain to have shown the driver where you need them to unload. They will show you what is required to unload correctly, and they will follow your instructions so that you can arrange and organize your new milk delivery. You also get to know these drivers through All-Freight as we believe in transparency and making every operation as smooth as possible. They will drive onto your property, give you the delivery that you need, and they will make it very simple for you to have the best possible results.
6. Emergency Deliveries
You can call us any time you need emergency delivery. There are times when you must have something brought to your location outside of your normal schedule. If you are outside the normal schedule for your company, remember that you must ask for a special delivery that might not come from your regular driver. You will pay a small fee for the emergency delivery and should be prepared to meet the driver at the gate so that they can get you the product that you need.
7. Fair Prices
The prices that you are quoted will stand so long as you have a consistent delivery time. At All-Freight, you can speak to our staff in the office about when the delivery should happen, and you must allow them to write up a plan for your company that delivers your milk without any trouble. The plan that you use can be altered if new delivery time is required, or you could increase the order while also receiving a cheaper rate for bulk deliveries.
8. Licensed And Insured
We at All-Freight are licensed to run a freight operation, and we have all the necessary safeguards in place to make it easy for customers to get safe and fast deliveries. All truck and drivers are insured for the work that they do, and you are protected when the truck is on your property. Even the driver is protected so that you are not liable for any damage or injury that might happen. You are taking your deliveries with no risk, and the products are insured in case something happens to the truck in-route to your facility.
9. Work With Flexibility
You can have any delivery done from any location. You may work with a company that is far from your facility, but a Carrier from All-Freight will pick up your milk, bring it to your location, and drop it off at the time you have requested. You could request a pickup from another location that is new to your driver or could call to have the driver rerouted when they are driving around the city. Our staff is very flexible, and they understand that your needs change at times that you did not expect.
10. Long-Distance Deliveries
Long-distance deliveries are helpful to you because they allow you to send the product to a new location, to take delivery from a place that makes the specific product you need, or allows you to work with a partner who gives us reasonable prices. You must work out a schedule for deliveries that will be appropriate for your facility, and you should get to know the driver who makes that long haul just for you. If you need long-distance delivery, you can ask us what we can do to get you the milk from places that are far away from home.
We Understand Your Milk Delivery Needs!
Milk delivery planning is more important than you might think. You need to have a plan for all deliveries that keep the milk fresh, helps you save money, and avoids problems that you might have had in the past with spoiled milk, high prices, or drivers who did not protect the products in the truck. All-Freight takes care of these things for you and ensures that you are sent milk you can use to drink, to make your next batch of baked goods, or in your industrial processes.
