Aren't you more interested in helping yourself than the other fellow? Sounds a bit selfish? Not at all. For in this case, when you act for your own interests, you help two others too, the canner and the railroad.
So without investing a nickel would you like to know how your net can be increased? Would you like to see canned goods go on the shelf with all of the sales appeal put there by the canner--and with better satisfaction all around? No expensive "returns"! No setting aside of cases for railroad inspection! No interruption to a smooth warehouse operation! No more bother or expense with claims!!!!
Yes, all of these things are within your grasp. Without cost. And results come quick and sure--perhaps with the next car. How? These pictures show why canned goods are dented in transit. Just look at them, and then decide for yourself how you want future cars to arrive.
You make the decision because the railroad sees only a few cars before they are unloaded; you see them all. Generally speaking, the canner knows nothing about the trouble and expense he is putting you to unless you report the damage to him, and tell him just what caused it.
Of course it will help the railroad if you tell the shipper about damage which he--and only he--can prevent. Naturally the railroad wants to merchandise a good product, i.e., faultless transportation, and stands to benefit from whatever preventive action you may take. The shipper likewise benefits. Your reports give him
the only chance he has to put up a damage-free load--and protect his reputation and good will with his customers. But, primarily, you are the chief beneficiary, and the object of this pamphlet is to assist you in determining the true causes of damage, and having satisfied yourself as to that, send a snap shot of the condition, along with a descriptive report to the shipper. He will thank you for your interest and when he corrects whatever is wrong with your shipment, every other firm to whom he ships will get the benefit of your report.
To the shipper: some of the best ways to prevent damage: Load cases tight, by the "bonded-block" method; install proper door protection; cover floor or floor-racks with fibreboard; use fibreboard sheets between stacks of different size boxes; handle boxes carefully in loading.
