WAREHOUSE

Our warehouse staff is trained per latest inter-modal loading guidelines for products in closed containers and trailers, the AAR rules.

Using Toyota’s series 7 electric trucks, we ensure safety and environmental requirements are always met per California OSHA guidelines for health and safety.

Because of the added training and equipment upgrades, freight claims for 2015-2016 were less than .06% of total shipments due to the rigorous policies and procedures followed to ensure your product is handed safely and loaded securely. All the credit goes to our warehouse supervisors and staff who have very high self-imposed standards and don’t consider a job done unless it is “The Right Way”.

We provide all blocking and bracing as per railroad requirements and standards.

Side wall liners and Thermal protective covers plus insulating foil covers are stored here for your added convenience and to provide extra protection keeping in mind the weather variations during transit.
