SAFETY AND SECURITY OF YOUR PRODUCT IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY
Your product is manufactured under a very specific set of conditions, with time and attention paid to quality controls, compliance and regulatory requirements. We understand how important it is to protect the integrity of your goods and ensure temperature control, security, chain of custody, and regulatory compliance guidelines are understood and flawlessly enforced.
Tucker's commitment to the safety and security of your freight begins with understanding your specific Standards of Care (SOCs), contracting with a select group of carriers, applying our innovative “forensic dispatch” approach to all shipments, and ends with the safe, seamless and on-time delivery of your product.
STANDARDS OF CARE
Tucker's team is accustomed to the rigorous operational and safety compliance standards required in the life sciences industry, and provide customized account support to adhere to your strict guidelines. Smart people assembled your standards of care. Many providers sign contracts and SOCs, and simply file them away. We seek to thoroughly understand your expectations, and once we do, we train our team and work with only the most appropriate carriers to support your business, as you requested.
Tucker leads the industry in carrier selection expertise. Our CEO previously chaired the committee that publishes the only trade association endorsed “Carrier Selection Framework.” We collaborate with the best minds in safety, security and risk management within the industry to ensure we’re providing services and carriers who protect your cargo and your brand.
Once a carrier meets our meticulous expectations, our team doesn’t stop there. Our well-trained personnel continues to reinforce load requirements, verify SOCs, relay safety and security best practices, and evaluate timeliness to ensure Tucker arranges transportation when and where it is promised, each and every time.
