Transportation Shipping Services Sample Proposal - The Narrative

Offering Competitive Quote for Hauling Services

Trop Fine Foods is paying big in diesel and travel time when you don’t need to. Darsten Transport knows your geographic area because the Pacific Northwest is our home. We’re familiar with the local port and rail facilities and your warehouse center and we have the variable fleet to efficiently handle all your transportation needs.

Darsten Transport can provide Trop Fine Foods with multiple transportation options as outlined below. We will be able to accommodate your needs with custom tailored solution. Darsten Transport maintains fleet of tractor trucks and semi trailers of various sizes and configurations including many semi trailers that are refrigerated or have refrigerator freezer compartments. We specialize in the food shipping business.

Refrigerated semi trailers – 28’ 45’ 57’ Have big load of frozen food to transport. Our modern freezer compartments can keep your load at steady safe temperature of -10°F 17°C even when the weather’s hot. And your fresh produce will arrive in perfect condition in our refrigerated trailers. Our state of the art cooling systems keep the temperature at crisp 34 to 38 degrees.

Dry vans – 28’ 53’ 57’ Dry packaged goods will be protected from the elements in our dry vans many of which are compartmentalized so that we can transport loads for multiple clients on the same trailer. Many of our dry vans include temperature control systems so we can keep your valuable produce from freezing even when the temperature is below zero outside. Flat beds – 28’ 53’ 57’ Got whole container of goods coming in by ship or by rail.

We’ll pick it up and deliver it to your warehouse or store with our intermodal container on flatbed system. And if you need large freezers or shelf units delivered for remodel or an oversize item for promotional display we can carry and offload those too. By reading the information below you can see how our transportation services stack up against your current service ZYPP Trucking.

We guarantee to meet or beat the price of any other carrier. Just show us your current contract and we’ll show you how we can do better. We are Pacific Northwest regional carrier so our drivers know the area and are not as fatigued as long haul carriers.

We have variety of trailer sizes and types so odds are good that we can always provide you with dedicated runs from pickup to delivery at your facility instead of less than truckload LTL runs that must make stops for multiple customers. Our trucks are equipped with state of the art Satellite Communications Systems which allow our drivers access to online maps two way communications with dispatch and email messages. You and the driver can easily communicate.

Our trucks are equipped with Pre Pass electronic systems so our drivers can bypass most weigh stations along the route. Darsten Transport has earned the ATTS Safety Seal for five years in row for our outstanding safety record. ZYPP has standard rates and offers no price comparison. ZYPP is common carrier with long haul runs so the driver for your load may have woken up in Colorado on the day he delivers to your store.

Studies have proven that driver fatigue is major factor in trucking accidents. ZYPP subcontracts to independent truckers so you never know which trailer will be scheduled for your run. Odds are good that your load will be bundled in with other less than truckload LTL runs and will take longer to arrive at its destination. Because ZYPP subcontracts to variety of truckers most trucks will have no Satellite Communications Systems and it’s possible that only ZYPP’s dispatch office will be able to inform you if there’s delay or an earlier than expected delivery.

Because ZYPP subcontracts to variety of truckers most trucks will have no Pre Pass electronic systems so their drivers may have to stop at multiple weigh stations along the route. ZYPP has never earned the ATTS Safety Seal and has an average accident rate. The following sites each have different requirements to be accounted for as described below. Darsten Transport already does business at these sites.

Our track record and familiarity with these locations can save you time and money.

Port of Bellehaven

The Port of Bellehaven requires strict documentation for all transportation equipment entering the facilities. Each tractor and trailer must carry origin and maintenance records as well as documentation of loads for the last six months. The driver’s history and nationality must be proven with standard documents. No driver leaves Darsten’s headquarters without all these documents in their required forms.

The Port of Bellehaven knows and trusts Darsten Transport so we operate there without the hassle and delays that many trucking companies experience. NGW Distribution Center Northwest Grocers Warehouse is an older facility with narrow lanes and low loading docks. Darsten drivers have lot of experience maneuvering in these tight spaces. NGW is happy to see our trucks turn into their driveways because they know we’re easy to work with.

Bellehaven Rail Yard Bellehaven Rail Yard is relatively small facility with only two cranes for shifting intermodal containers from rail flatbeds to flatbed trailers. We have received and delivered containers there for more than years so we have an efficient hand off system worked out between our drivers and their freight coordinators. No time will be wasted at the rail yard when you use Darsten Transport to move your goods.

Trop Fine Stores Trop Fine stores typically occupy medium size spaces in small mall type buildings. How do we know. Because we are the shipping company for Rex Rite Drug Stores which occupy many of these same mall spaces. In other words we already deliver to your neighbors.

We know all about the crowded parking lots pedestrians and family neighborhoods on your borders. We know the best routes in and out of your neighborhoods and the best ways to maneuver up to your delivery door. And we have trucks of all sizes to accommodate your needs without blocking your customers’ access. About Us – Darsten Transport Services was begun by Eugene Darsten with one tractor and two semi trailers in 1982.

Now the business includes his two sons and two daughters and their husbands as well as other loyal employees. "From to with Extreme Efficiency" is our company motto. And we live that motto every day transporting goods throughout Oregon Washington and eastern Idaho. Darsten Transport is headquartered in Tukwila Washington and maintains part time regional offices in Coeur d’Alene Idaho and Asheville Oregon.

Services Our fleet of modern tractor trucks and semi trailers of differing sizes and types allows us to configure each delivery to fit your company’s needs. How to Contact Darsten Transport You can reach us at Darsten Transport. Did you know that you are paying more for trucking services than you need to.

We know that Trop Fine Foods currently uses large nationwide trucking service for your delivery of goods. But their closest dispatch center is thousand miles away whereas the dispatch center and headquarters for Darsten Transport is within miles of most of your stores and only miles away from the farthest Trop Fine Foods location. So you’re paying big in diesel and travel time when you don’t need to.

Darsten Transport knows your geographic area because the Pacific Northwest is our home. We’re familiar with the local port and rail facilities and your warehouse center and we have the variable fleet to efficiently handle all your transportation needs. Please call us today for quote.
