Ambient Temperature Controlled Food Services

Here at PDQ Cold Call we are aware of the needs many manufacturers and retailers have for exact temperature controlled transport for their goods. Whatever the continual fluctuations in external weather conditions, our temperature-controlled solutions ensure that each and every one of our customers receives a reliable courier service that sees their products arrive at their final destination in the perfect state.

There are many ways that we ensure an industry-leading level of AMBIENT controlled courier options, one of which is our state of the art fleet of vehicles, each of them fitted with the latest temperature monitoring technology. This ensures that your goods maintain a controlled room temperature state, no matter what the external conditions are, with our ‘Track and Trace’ option allowing you to monitor the exact location and temperature of your transport at every stage of transit.

Each of our refrigeration units are fully maintained and serviced by their manufacturer Carrier at 16 week intervals, with all of our vehicles having full UK and European breakdown cover. To further ensure reliability and peace of mind in our ambient food storage, all of our vehicles are equipped with electric standby cables, allowing them to be run independently run of the vehicles engine .High specification bodies allow the interior temperature of the vehicle to remain constant for over 2 hours, in the unlikely event of fridge breakdown, allowing time for a resolution of the issue.

We have put detailed thought into every aspect of ambient logistics, ensuring that your ambient controlled transport is delivered exactly as you require. To further evidence this, every single driver on our staff receives full safety and proficiency training, ensuring that they are fully aware of all industry guidelines for safe and reliable transit. Here at PDQ couriers, we maintain the highest standards in every area of our courier service.

To guarantee that we provide a safe chain of custody for your items, we utilise the latest in barcode technology, allowing us to uniquely identify each and every item we carry for our clients. This level of service has seen us become an ambient controlled courier service who works with a range of multinational manufacturers and leading food retailers. Our safety standards are further evidenced by the fact that we hold full UKAS ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 accreditations, following all key standard operating procedures to provide a service of unrivalled integrity.

Our online "Track and Trace" portal allows each of our clients unique access to view their delivery signatures in real-time, which means you can track the exact to-the-second status of the temperature and location of your goods. The portal also provides easy access to book future jobs, something that many of our clients have done after seeing the quality and reliability of our service.
