Choosing the right transportation company

The transportation industry is a competitive and innovative industry. Choosing the right company to transport your products, especially temperature regulated products, can be a tough choice. Cold storage transportation has many specific regulations and guidelines that need to be properly followed to ensure the safe shipping of your product. As a company that has been a leader in this industry for over five decades, Erb Transport knows these regulations and prioritizes them at the highest level. When you’re choosing a company for your shipping needs, make sure to follow our simple guidelines.

Make sure to choose…

• A company with experience. Knowledge is power! One of the best forms of learning is hands-on experience. You can learn anything in a classroom, but until you’re in the real world situation, you never know what could happen. Choose an organization that has dealt with situations, both good and bad, in the past. A company with over 50 years of experience would be a good choice!

• A company that treats their employee’s right. When you choose your company, you’re choosing to work directly with their employees. If the employees are treated fairly and respectfully, they will do the same with your shipment. A company that cares about its employees is a company that will care about your service, too!

• A company with a good reputation. This might just be the most important aspect! Usually, a positive reputation stems from satisfied customers. By choosing a company with a strong reputation, you immediately minimize the risk of unsatisfactory service. Of course, there will always be good and bad reviews, so be confident that the reviews you’re reading are primarily positive. A company with an average of 4.6 out of 5 stars on Facebook could be a great candidate!

• A company that stays on top of their certifications. At Erb Transport, security and safety are our top priority. We hold ourselves to the highest possible standard when safety is involved. We also make it a priority to get many of our certifications before they become mandatory, in order to stay informed and updated about all safety regulations in the industry. You can find more about our certifications on the Erb Group website.

• A company that cares. When you finally choose your transportation company, be confident that your service and satisfaction are a priority. At Erb Transport, our founder, Vernon Erb, has been driving trucks for the majority of his life. It was a dream to own a trucking company, and now that he does, he ensures the satisfaction of all of his customers!

Choosing a transportation company can be a tough decision, and shouldn’t be made lightly! Be confident in your decision, and ensure you take all of the above suggestions into consideration. If you chose Erb Transport as your company, then we’ll see you soon!
