    Publix distribution centers

    Anyone ever delivered to a publix DC? If so, I am interested to see how they handled you and how long it took.

    I don't know about dry box stuff, but if you have perishables on, when you arrive close to your appointed time, you're given a door, you take your bills in and the activity (unloading) starts mo schosh! They don't mess around. Driver/Receiver interaction; Neutral.

    As far as Florida goes, Jacksonville and Orlando(or Lakeland, not sure) are OK.
    On the other hand, Deerfield Beach, a disaster. They got me to open the door, park, and than waited for 6 Hrs. When they finally got to it, stuff wasn't frozen anymore...

    Have had good luck in Lakeland and Jacksonville. For a grocery warehouse they are one of the best. But only been pulling food since mid-march.

    I've delivered to the Sarasota warehouse a few times. Never had a problem, bump the dock, 1 1/2 hr later out the gate. I even got unloaded ahead of my appointment one time. Somebody with a 2 oclock apt was late. I had a 4 oclock. At 2:05 they put me in a door.

    Where's the Sarasota Publix warehouse? I know where the Kash & Karry use to be, but don't know the publix one. I use to live in Bradenton.

    You're really trying to stretch my memory in my feeble brain. If I remember right I got off 75 at Clark rd and went east aways and turned left onto the street it was on. I don't remember the name of the street but it was a dead end street.

    I used to deliver to Publix right outside of Atlanta EVERY week and they were AWESOME. I would deliver all sorts of produce from California, Arizona, and Washington. They had a huge place to park and sleep while waiting on your time and were very decent. I would shop at a Publix every time IF they had one around where I live now. I have to admit, Publix was one of the best places I ever delivered to, period.
