Advises on Loading & Shipment

Important Information !: Should you arrange for the transport, you must check with the supplier for the following:
Truck entering company’s warehouse halls may be asked to follow  only indicated traffic direction.

  • If the shipper requires the incoming trucks to be Euro 3 or Euro 4 Class category.
  • If the shipper requires that loading can be effected only from the top of the truck by the use of crane and not from the side.
  • If the shipper has forklift in case that loading by the side is possible.
  • If the driver has to wear gloves, special boots and helmet during the loading of goods.
  • If the driver must have anti slips mats.
  • If the driver must have tension belts for the tie down
  • What are the loading hours that the shipper operates.
  • You must make sure that when the truck arrives at your premises for the unloading, you have the necessary means for the unloading ie forklift.
  • In cases of export licenses ask from your transport company the truck to not pass through free trade zones,
    best not the truck to be an independent driver but to be part of the transport company’s fleet.
  • Suppliers may not be held liable for any damage resulting from the driver not following safety measures asked by the supplier.
  • Standard transport insurance provided by the transport company is not enough.
  • Always insure the transport for 110 % of the invoice value through an insurance company, this costs for small orders about 30 Euro / shipment.
