    That makes no sense. Did you see the flies?

    When they open the trailer at the receiver for delivery, yes.

    Inquiring minds would like to know why Florida needs to bring in bottled Pepsi all the way from Virginia...

    Unlikely it's actual soda. It's likely one of their specialty products that only have one bottler in the US. Like the Coke plant in Paw Paw MI does juices....
     
    Lonesome and Just passing by Thank this.

    Something must have had maggots on it when they loaded and they all hatched on the way. That's just strange.
     
    Ridgeline Thanks this.

    Isn't there a way to gas the flys?
    I seem to recall there is to starve them of oxygen.
    And not contaminate the product.
    I know I pulled more than one load of Kellogg's that had ants.
    I think the receiver would have me park the trailer over to the side and drop it.
    I probably picked up another and left.
    I don't recall what they did exactly. They didn't refuse the load.

    That sucks to sit for a week. The broker,shipper,receiver should figure out what they wanna do with the load.
