Our transportation program is a powerful combination of cost effectiveness and continued commitment to quality. We maintain and service a fleet of 70 stainless steel tankers and contract with professional trucking firms to deliver members’ milk to customers.
New drivers are trained in quality control procedures, and a yearly review of quality and security priorities is conducted by the Transportation Department. UDA’s entire fleet of tankers pick-up over a million gallons of milk a day.
