Proper documentation, such as bills of lading, shipping labels, and delivery receipts, is prepared to accompany the goods during transportation. This ensures that the necessary information is available and that the goods can be properly identified and accounted for.
Effective communication channels are established to facilitate coordination among various parties involved, including shippers, carriers, drivers, and recipients. This helps ensure smooth execution of the pickup and delivery process and enables timely updates on any changes or issues.
Handling and Safety:
Adequate measures are taken to handle the goods securely during pickup, transit, and delivery. This may involve using appropriate packaging, equipment, or specialized handling procedures to protect the goods from damage or theft.
Proof of Delivery:
Once the goods are delivered, a proof of delivery is obtained, typically in the form of a signed receipt or electronic confirmation. This serves as evidence that the goods reached the intended recipient.
