Dispatch/Truck Driver Information

We want to keep your trucks on the road - moving. Loading and unloading time will be much faster with your cooperation and attention to the details outlined below.

All truck drivers must call ahead to schedule a dock appointment and to get directions.

We have 3 different locations - Home Place, Windy Flat & Pleasant Hill/Brabham Rd.  If your paperwork does not specify a location, please confirm with our shipping coordinator.

Shipping & Receiving

Drivers, please read and follow these guidelines:

  • Trucks arriving without an appointment will be handled only as time allows.
     
  • Our shipping crews are valued employees and are very good at what they do.  In general, they do not have information beyond the immediate shipment (the number of bins to be loaded).  Drivers should work with our shipping managers, not the crews, to answer questions and discuss time frames, load weights and other details.
     
  • For safety, drivers should stay clear of personnel and machinery while trailer is being loaded.
     
  • Please do not leave the dock area without checking in at the office. The can yard (any area with potted plants) is off limits.
     
  • Drivers are prohibited from temporarily off loading any plant material on Fall Creek loading docks or property.
     
  • Leaving pallets behind is also prohibited. If we have purchased a full trailer, please do not bring any pallets with you.  Any pallets that take up needed footage in the trailer must be removed.
     
  • Our typical load consists of custom bin boxes with a footprint that is larger than a standard pallet. They cannot be stacked. At a maximum, a 48’ van holds 24 of our bins, and a 53’ van holds 26 of our bins.  If your paperwork does not specify how much space is required, please contact our shipping coordinator.
     
  • All trailers should have two load locks for use by Fall Creek® when needed.
     
  • All trailers should arrive clean, in good repair and free from soil, media and plant debris. We do not have facilities for cleaning trailers.

We reserve the right to not load any trailer if any of the above conditions are in question.
