Here at Western Growers Trade Practices, we encourage shippers to embrace a culture of best practices by putting in place every day procedures and protocols. As part of that mantra, we preach to document, document, and document. As a shipper, we know you strive every day to fulfill your customers’ expectations, on every sales transaction. Because occasional disputes at destination can arise on a perishable sales transaction, most of those contested matters have at the center of the issue, a question related to pulp temperatures at origin, in-transit temperatures, or at destination.
