However, to do the job right we need to follow some best practices to ensure everything goes to plan. Let’s take a look at these here to make it easier for you to choose DDE for your shipping needs.
First off, different products and goods – let’s call them commodities – come with different requirements. In short, not all commodities are the same and they need to be treated differently to ensure safe transport from the time of pickup to final delivery. So, if your product requires special treatment during loading or unloading we’ll need to know about it beforehand.
In fact, the best practices for shipping goods with Desert Deck Express can be boiled down to four easy to remember items. These include:
- Both parties – shipper and freight company – need to clearly understand the commodity. They both should be able to answer the basic question – “what is it?”
- Both parties – shipper and freight company – need to be familiar with how the commodity should be treated during loading, during transport and during unloading.
- Both parties – shipper and freight company – should ask any and all questions they feel necessary to ensure safe, secure delivery of the commodity.
- Both parties – shipper and freight company – should document all necessary shipping procedures and commodity requirements to ensure smooth delivery.
