Our drivers are trained in the proper methods of loading and unloading food and food grade products, and follow strict checklist when inspecting a trailer before loading:

  • Check for food residues from earlier loads.
  • Check for cleaning and sanitizing residues.
  • Check the cooling unit for proper function.
  • Check trailer insulation and door seals.
  • Pre-cool the unit for at least an hour at the required temperature for the food.
