Taking the panic out of a crisis

A distress load is where food safety could have been compromised. This can be anything from pallets moving in transit, to incorrect temperature or clandestine infiltration.

Taking a panic out of a crisis. Our distress load service has developed over the year with the increasing number of hauliers, suppliers and insurers coming across issues with loads and no one being able to react.

Any situation arising from a load which could potentially end up incurring huge loss and associated costs, can be dealt with onsite at our BRC accredited premises in Redditch.

Types of Distress Load:

  • Contact from person or persons gaining unauthorised access to the load-clandestine infiltration
  • Damage through pallets collapsing or pallets in need of restocking due to move in transit
