    Berry Plastics in Monroe is now a d/h for us. I’m not sure why because they knock out a full trailer in 30 mins or less. We do ship them a truckload everyday though.

    J M Simplot in Grand Forks. Had a 8am appt. Got in the dock at 8 15, and at 8 45 loaded, sealed, and headed down the road. The old guy in shipping is a dick, I wanted to yank his old grouchy ### through the window

    Here s a few more good places that I ve encountered in the last few weeks:

    Henningsley Cold Storage Grand Forks, ND. Arrived 8 15 for an 8 30 appt. Checked in, backed into door 7, and was loaded and leaving at 9 10am. Very driver friendly, and has overnight parking.

    Interstate Cold Storage Columbus, OH. Arrived at 1 30 for a 2 PM appointment. Checked in, the unloader was outside waiting for me to come back out. He cut my seal, I backed in, and 2pm was empty and gone. They have overnight parking as well.

    US Cold Storage Fort Worth TX. I arrived for a 8 15pm for a 1 am appt. I checked in, and by the time I got back to truck, was told to back up, they had already cut the seal. And at 8 47pm, they had unloaded me, case count, and was out the gate. They have overnight parking along the street outside of the gate

    Cosco in Atlanta is the same way. They'll take you early and they don't jack around.

    Y'all aren't kidding!
    Made my first ever Costco delivery, and was dreading it because we seldom ever do those types of haul.

    I read this thread about the ATL location and had some hope that it may go well.
    IT DID.

    Had an 0800.
    Entered the gate at 0733
    Was empty and ticket stamped at guard shack at 0758 !

    I'll haul that every day of the week.

    They don't mess around!!

    No joke. I'll bet dedicated is even easier.
    Ain't a lot of fun coming out of that lot trying to turn into 55 mph traffic. But, hey, you take the good with the bad

    New Cold Advantage Storage in Tacoma, WA. I arrived at 1200 for a 2200 appointment. I checked in, got a door, and was unloaded in 45 minutes. They even allowed me to stay on property. Super nice people
