Small Package: In most instances Small Package refers to Federal Express. This service works best for last minute orders and for customers outside normal truck routes. Finished product is not recommended for shipping by this method and is at customers' own risk. Temperature extremes: If a product is shipping via small package service into an area where freeze or heat damage is likely, we reserve the right to upgrade the delivery to a Priority Overnight Service. The additional cost will be reflected on the customer’s invoices. 
Truck: Please be aware trucks will need to have 24/7 access to a customer's place of business for deliveries. Special discounted freight rates will be available to those who order truckload volumes. While we strive to ship via the Aris route truck April - May, if for any reason we cannot, LTL carriers will be used and LTL rates will apply. Click to see details for  Florida Winter Shipping Policy.

LTL: We can provide LTL (less Than Truckload) service outside those areas covered by our truck routes or during the time our route truck shipments are unavailable. Orders shipped before April or after May will ship via LTL carrier and LTL carrier rates will apply.
Drop points: Customers acting as drop points  & customers picking up at these drop points, are invoiced at regular truck rates with no minimum drop charge.
Cart shipping:
 We deliver Florida product lines on carts to customers along established routes on the East Coast and in Southern states between Florida and Texas. There is a two-cart minimum. Shipping to other areas will be considered if minimum volumes are met. In most cases we use one-way disposable carts.
LOSS AND DAMAGED SHIPMENTS: All shipments should be accepted from the carrier regardless of condition. If damage is apparent, or if the shipment is delivered short, a notation to that effect should be made on the carrier's delivery receipt. If damage is of such a nature that it is not discovered until the boxes are unpacked, the carrier's agent should be notified and arrangements made for an inspection. This should be done immediately after the discovery of the damage, but no later than 48 hours after discovery.
