I am attempting to get a food manufacturer with no previous use of BRC to be certified. The factory is remotely located in a rural area. We use third party contracted haulers for our finished product. NONE of the people we use for delivery of our product have ever even heard of BRC. I am looking for an example to satisfy the request for a "vehicle breakdown procedure". Our warehouse manager simply states "there is absolutely no contractual agreement on anything with the companies shipping our product, its simply done with insurance, once they sign for the load, they own the load". I have explained that the requirements for BRC would need more documentation. It seems impossible. It is like I am calling up other trucking companies to tell them how to run their own business. It is like I am not only the BRC coordinator for my company, but for all the companies we deal with as well. None of the trucking companies have a single other client making requests like this. But now that I am done feeling sorry for my current position......
Does anybody have a template for a "Vehicle Breakdown Procedure", and any advice as to how to get a third part contracted Truck to receive and return the paperwork involved with 4.15?
I am new at this and have no one but you all to probe for solutions on these matters so I appreciate any advice you may have to offer.
