WAREHOUSE

At Can-Am, we take to heart the quality of our service. Cleanliness and efficient organization is an important aspect for us and our customers. Maintaining our warehouse and vehicles is equal to the products they store. Our warehouse refrigerators have isolated thermostats, providing us the ability to control the temperature in each refrigerator individually. As well, allowing us to continually monitor refrigeration levels for produce longevity. All our produce is stored on Chip and GP palettes, simplifying storage and handling.

SHIPPING AND RECEIVING

Our trucks are equipped with refrigeration units, guaranteeing product freshness upon delivery. The temperature of each vehicle is verified on a daily basis using an infrared gun. Products received are verified to meet our standards according to the season and availability. Once accepted, items are stored immediately in respective lots.

LOGISTICS

Shipping and receiving are orchestrated to function in tandem. Rather than having two vehicles, we use one according to location and time of day for delivery and pick-up of merchandise, reducing number of vehicles on the road.

  • Decrease transportation;
  • Promote the local economy;
  • Promote organic produce and healthy eating;
  • Provide better quality produce;
  • Reduce hazardous effects for the earth.
