Dallas Courier, Out of Town Refrigerated Logistics

There’s a lot of focus these days on fake news. You know…yellow journalism, propaganda, misrepresentation of the truth. Yikes!


Here at Dallas Courier, though, that’s not how we operate. For over 37 years, we’ve been providing transportation and logistics services to customers throughout the DFW Metroplex. Our services have transformed, as have the customers we serve, and the needs of our customers.


One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is our commitment to our core values of honesty and integrity. For nearly four decades, we’ve remained dedicated to service and steadfast character. We like to think it’s that dedication that’s allowed us to remain one of the most prominent couriers in DFW for nearly 40 years. We didn’t get here by buying into untruth- that so-called fake news.


So when it comes to your out of town refrigerated logistics- one of the many fabulous services we offer here at Dallas Courier- we’re filling you in on the truth behind some of the most common myths about this service. Pay attention, you could learn something!


Myth #1

Pricing is the most important point to consider.

Your bottom line is important to you, and it’s important to your courier. But basing your decisions solely on price would be a grave mistake. In the world of transportation, you get what you pay for. A cost-cutting courier will offer you cut-rate service.


The preparation and monitoring that goes into creating and executing out of town refrigerated logistics is immense. In order to do it properly, it takes a committed courier. An appropriately compensated courier will spend more time with your shipment, monitoring the temperature and moving it safely, yet quickly. While couriers like Dallas Courier want to remain competitive in our industry, we also want to ensure our team members are motivated to do a great job with your deliveries. Like we said, you get what you pay for!


Myth #2

Anybody can run a delivery service.

These days, this might be true, but not everyone can run a delivery service well. Out of town deliveries require drivers with great driving records and certifications for your sensitive deliveries. For example, HIPAA and OSHA certified couriers are responsible for temperature sensitive medical deliveries. Couriers savvy on food transportation laws are qualified to transport refrigerated food and beverages.


Sure, anyone can get behind the wheel and call themselves a courier. But a certified, trained, and professional transportation team is a true unicorn.


Myth #3

Only full trucks can move out of Dallas.

Out of town refrigerated logistics is often done in large loads, considering the distance and cost required to move these items. But Dallas Courier can and does transport less than truckload. We have a variety of fleet, including sprinter vans, to transport smaller refrigerated deliveries. We also offer 26 foot straight trucks capable of holding dozens of pallets.


One thing is uniform, though. When you have out of town deliveries,  you can rest assured knowing your cargo will never be handed off to a third party. Not only that, with custom critical services, your items will move out of town quickly, without stopping for consolidation. Dallas Courier can move anything, anytime, anywhere, no matter how large or small the load.


Myth #4

Refrigerated logistics is limited to just food.

As a farming state, many foods move into and out of North Texas via food distribution routes involving out of town refrigerated logistics. But to consider long distance logistics for food only would be unfair.


Temperature controlled logistics are required for antiques, furniture, artwork, cosmetics, technology, and many other sensitive items. The truth is, Dallas Courier moves thousands of different items, with the list growing with each new customer. Think we can’t move it? Try us!


Let us lay a little more truth on you: Dallas Courier is a dedicated team of professionals who is available to move your cargo, no matter how big or small, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
