Choosing the Best Refrigerated Trucking Companies

By JC Tolentino Subscribe to RSS | May 11th 2012 | Views:

There are a number or numerous factors should be considered when seeking or finding the best refrigerated trucking companies. While at a glance, each of these refrigerated trucking companies may appear to be nearly the same or very similar, there are actually many types and classes of refrigerated trucking companies that specialize in a number of different industries. Each of them will ensure or to make sure that the products being carried will remain at a constant temperature, but from there, the services offered can greatly vary from one company to the next. When seeking and checking for the best refrigerated trucking company, it is essential and important to negotiate terms like what services will be available, the flexibility within the delivery schedule, and the overall cost of conducting the business. Another crucial and vital aspect to consider and the most important part are the refrigerated trucking companies and its overall track record with customer service and correcting problems when they occur.

Of course, price is always a major concern in any business, and many refrigerated trucking companies will go out of their way to introduce hidden costs and expenses that were not discussed beforehand. For example, many freight lines require the truck driver to unload the delivered cargo personally, and a hefty charge is added regardless of whether or not this actually takes place. If the cargo is being delivered to a fully staffed warehouse, then it is senseless to pay this additional cost. Other miscellaneous or other expenses that seem to pop up within refrigerated trucking companies are the overnight waiting fees, the hitch and the unhitch costs, and the multiple stop expenses. Each of these should be negotiated beforehand so there is no confusion after the products have actually been delivered.

Other refrigerated trucking companies or truck refrigeration companies do not like to deal with the cargo at all, and refrigerated trucking company drivers are instructed to simply drive to the destination and wait for the shipment to be unloaded or to be delivered. If there are multiple stops being made and the driver waits several hours at each of them, it can easily delay a routine schedule by several days. This may not be a major concern for an occasional delivery, but vendors that hire refrigerated trucking companies to constantly deliver products could experience serious problems in maintaining inventory.

Possibly the largest and the major factor to consider in choosing and deciding for the best refrigerated trucking companies is to look at their overall customer satisfaction, because problems occur every day for small businesses. If a business were to run out of product due to a sudden increase in sales, for example, and the next delivery was not scheduled to arrive for several more days, not all refrigerated trucking companies would ensure that the problem is rectified. For this reason alone, it is vital and important to choose refrigerated trucking companies that have solid customer service records and the ability to handle emergency shipments when it is required.
