Hello Nadim,

  • Is your company responsible for obtaining the logistics (do you arrange and pay for) or does your customer?
  • Is the product bulk liquid, packaged in boxes, sealed and packaged in boxes?
  • Does product need to maintain a cold chain or have other storage/shipping requirements to negate a biological hazard?

One way to address "transport comany also deal with non food items as well" is to have an agreement with the transportation company that they use dedicated trailers for your product only and those dedicated trailers are kept clean and meet standards in the guidance doc.

 

 

You might want to go to SQFI website and take a look at the guidance doc section 11.6 if you haven't already.

Hi Tim,

 

Thanks for reply,

 

Yes it is our company responsible for logistic.

Product is packed in sealed bag or pouch and in boxes

No it is ambient product.

 

Hygiene wise the transport company is quite good, we have checks in place before loading vehicle, but there is no guarantee that after picking a load from us they will not load other items from other business in same truck. for  transporting 2-3 pallets alone in a truck is not economical  for low commodity products, hence we are using transport company do does mix items transports.

 

regards

 

Nadim
