Most logistics and transportation industries know that transporting alcohol requires a lot more works than transporting other categories of goods, especially in British Columbia. The logistics process is distinct from other sectors of the market whilst still sharing some similitude in general.
Three factors must be considered:
Volume versus Weight
Alcohol beverages, even with non-alcohol beverages, are liquid, and it is a large amount that can be weighted significantly heavier. The volume and the weight may not be in perfect ratio when loading to the truck. Most importantly, the assigned carrier must be able to compromise the heavy-duty.
As alcohol and non-alcohol are required food-graded transporters, the temperature is a very important specification that must be accommodated by the carrier. Whether it needs what temperatures, the goal is transporting the beverages within the acceptable range to prevent adulteration.
Alcohol permitted logistics and transportations require licenses and permits accordingly to the practice regions. Regulations and laws are in effect where the transportation happens and destinations. Permits may vary in different provinces in Canada, all involved parties are required to obtain whichever certification they may need.
Transporting alcohol is a difficult segment in logistics. Failure to do any of the above may lead to catastrophe. 18 Wheels Logistics is a reputable licensed beverage 3PL provider. Call us today to find out more.
