At Vee’s Marketing, we follow the produce industry “Good Delivery Standard” using the following interpretation:
1. Onions scoring 5% or more in the serious defects column do not make “Good Delivery”
2. Onions scoring 4% or less in the serious defects column do make “Good Delivery” unless they score 9% or more defects in the general defects column.
3. Onions scoring 9% or more in the general defects column are out of grade, even if the defects do not score in the serious defects column
4. A shipper is entitled to a government inspection if they request it. Scoring by a federal inspector will be considered final.
5. If the federal inspection is waived, the customer will have the right to deduct from the invoice a reasonable amount to cover shrink and any additional expense incurred as a result of sub-standard product. A settlement report from the customer detailing the deduction must be returned to Vee’s within 10 days of the trouble report being filed. Failure to produce a settlement report 30 days past the filing of the trouble report will void the claim making the file due as originally ordered.
6. No invoice deduction will be allowed without a trouble report accompanying the short pay invoices
7. If a federal inspection is taken and the onions “pass” score within “Good Delivery Standards” the following will apply:
– The customer will not be entitled to any deduction off the invoice.
– The customer will be liable to pay for the federal inspection.
8. Vee’s Marketing will attempt to moderate all claims (disputes) in a fair and unbiased position with equal rights being paid to both shipper and receiver.
