L&D PREVENTION: QUAKER OATS CAN POINT TO A RECORD SHOWING A 30% DROP IN DAMAGE

Quaker Oats is one of the shippers that has decided to come to grips with the loss and damage problem, especially in the area of grocery products distribution. Aside from developing its own in-house damage prevention program, Quaker Oats' transportation division also participated in a survey of handling and transportation practices for packaged grain mill products completed recently under the guidance of the AAR. Ultimately, a national damage prevention program for these products will be undertaken, based on the survey results. Today, Quaker Oats can point to a record which shows about a 30 percent drop in damage to shipments moving in both plain and equipped box cars from processing plant to its 30 distribution warehouses located across the nation.
