Required Delivery Details for Roasters with Atlas-Arranged Freight

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, carriers have adjusted their procedures to maintain efficient supply chain processes. If a business is closed when they attempt delivery, they can return the goods to the warehouse and charge for the shipment moving out and back. We want to help you avoid the additional costs and the delays that would result from a return shipment, so we are asking each roaster to confirm the following on every order placed.

  • What delivery address would you like us to use on this order?
  • Have we delivered to this address before?
  • Do you need a lift-gate for delivery at this location?
  • What hours is the facility staffed for receiving? If the location is not staffed consistently, please provide a phone number for the carrier to use in securing a delivery appointment with you.

If you have Atlas arrange your freight, we require confirmation of these details for both new and existing clients. To avoid delays, please include your answers to the above questions when you place an order.

We are available to answer any questions you have. Please reach out as needed. Stay safe, everyone!
