Hi folks, I'm bidding on a contract delivering poland spring direct to dorm rooms in Boston (I know, fingerprinting bottles of water to 5th floors in Boston from a 53' probably makes most of you want to throw up, but that's the part I know something about) and have a few questions for those of you that've run loads out of there. We're planning on doing the freight in addition to the actual last mile delivery stuff.
How are those 5 gallon jugs loaded onto pallets? Are they on regular pallets and strapped down? specialized pallets for jugs? Those square blue box things that cage the jugs and make them stackable? What's the scoop on that.
How cool is the PS dock about working loads to get you to weigh right?
Is this a "plan on being there for 4 hours" kinda dock or do they get it done quickly? dock appointments? What's the scoop.
