Q. Are goods for despatch checked for quality prior to being despatched?

14th August 2019

All collecting vehicles are inspected prior to loading to ensure they are clean, free from odours that could cause taint and free from any potential contaminates. The state of the vehicle is then recorded on the dispatch paperwork.

If the vehicle is considered unsuitable for loading the customer/owner of the goods is contacted immediately and advice sought on what action to take.

Products are loaded quickly and taken directly from the chamber and placed onto the vehicle to prevent temperature abuse, all carried out on a sealed loading bay.

All products are inspected upon loading to ensure they are:

  • Correctly coded
  • Within the appropriate depot life and shelf life requirements
  • Correct quantity
  • Safely stacked or palletised
  • The correct temperature
