Garrett Transport, now use Pallet-Track with its new 267,000 sq ft Central Hub Facility in Wolverhampton is within easy reach of the M5 & M6. Managing director Simon Garrett said: “I particularly like the member involvement with Pallet-Track and the ethos of the network as it shares many of our own objectives in terms of quality of service and the strategic use of technology”.
Garrett Transport are also certified members of TASCC (Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops), for the haulage of bulk combinable crops, dry feed materials/ingredients, compound animal feeding stuffs and as-grown cereal/herbage seed.
TASCC was developed because farmers and end users wanted to be sure that crops of grain, oilseeds and pulses were treated responsibly once they left the farm. That includes wheat processed by flour millers and malting barley for the brewers and distillers in the drinks industry. It provides independent verification that the trade is meeting food safety laws.
The scheme is audited and certified by an independent certification body, in accordance with the internationally recognised standard EN45011. This means that the certification body is itself independently assessed every year to ensure that the standard is implemented and administered consistently and fairly.
The scheme dovetails with UFAS and with the UK livestock assurance (Red Tractor) schemes which the major supermarkets make a requirement for the home-produced livestock products they buy.
TASCC is also recognised within the food industry as being essential to maintaining traceability of assured combinable crops after they have left the farm.
The Scheme is made up of a Scheme Manual and four codes of practice (Storage, Haulage, Merchants and Testing Facilities). The Storage Scheme is operated to a joint scheme with the Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA) covering combinable crops and feed materials.
