As your trusted provider of intermodal trucking in Chicago, Illinois, we know that every package you entrust to us is built upon your time, money, energy, and effort, along with the little things in between before it reached us.
Thus, we do our best to be deserving of your continued trust and patronage and to match and even go beyond your expectations of what a truck services provider should be. This said, some events are out of our control, and damage from shipping is still common, whether from human error or otherwise.
Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to ensure that your shipments get to your customers in the condition you sealed it in. Here are some of the basic ones:
- Label your packages accordingly
Shipping sensitive equipment or fragile materials? Label it to prevent mishandling! Some examples of the labels you can use are ‘This Side Up’ and/or ‘Fragile.’
- Work with your logistics provider
Your provider has a dedicated customer service you can inquire with to help you. Ask them for the best way to package and secure your products for your container transportation.
- Find a trucking company with a good reputation
Your efforts can go a long way but securing a trustworthy trucking company, such as Emax Transportation, Inc., can make a world of difference, especially if they also cover services such as drayage in Chicago, Illinois. This way, you can ensure that the agents involved in the transport process are kept at a minimum, thus, keeping similar standards throughout.
