                DELIVERY OPTIONS
Transportation is federally regulated and UNFI adheres to all Department of Transportation regulations. As road and deliv- ery conditions vary, your delivery ETA may fluctuate with these conditions; this is due to the limited driving/delivery hours available within the federal regulations. UNFI utilizes several delivery methods: UNFI delivery truck, Third Party common carrier, FedEx, UPS, or customer will call.
Our drivers are trained to adhere to company safety standards and follow these general guidelines:
Customer Location:
As UNFI observes all local ordinances it is necessary your location provides a safe and legal parking area for the delivery truck. Delivery trucks are not able to deliver in residential areas; we will establish an alternate location for you to meet the truck.
Delivery Area:
As part of UNFI’s safe delivery practices, drivers may not ascend/descend more than 3 stairs.Please ensure your delivery entrance is accessible to our driver and not to exceed 50 yards from the delivery area. Pallet deliveries may not be moved onto your store floor during business hours by the UNFI driver.
Delivery areas should be maintained and clear of any debris (including ice and snow during inclement weather). Areas not safe for delivery can not be accessed by the UNFI driver.
Driver Responsibility:
The UNFI driver will count piece/pallet/repack/totes each delivery. Goods from the delivery may not be separated until the driver and store receiver have agreed to the count and the delivery coversheet has been signed.
Customers who receive “key drop” delivery must designate an area for dry product and ensure adequate space is available in coolers and dry area for product to be delivered. The UNFI driver will place perishable products in the cooler and dry product in the designated area.
