Due to the limited size of my shipments, we use 100% LTL or contracted carriers. Our current procedures have satisfied BRC Certification audit, but there are clear weaknesses in our process.
Mainly liability and risk to the product during shipping. I'm trying to develop a contract for the short distance or one time carriers.
Does anyone have any recommendations or examples of contracts used for transporting direct food contact packaging?
Currently our statement is located on the Bill of Lading which the driver must sign prior to leaving our facility.
"Dry, Cleaned Truck. Truck must be free of odor, damage and moisture. No refrigerated trucks. Padlock at time of delivery."
Of course, prior to loading the truck we inspect. Also, the customer is expected to inspect the product upon receiving.
Thank you for your help!
