The Transportation Dashboard site provides information on system wide truck runs, stops, and times. It is a tool that provides great transparency into our Dairy One sample transportation system.
This transportation system is used by DHI Field Technicians, producer payment customers, and others who rely on regular truck routes that are driven almost non-stop throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region. Each truck driver has a regular route and stops at each pickup point on average 3 times per week to retrieve samples. These samples are then trucked to our milk lab in Ithaca, New York.
In many areas, the truck stops are also used for transporting other items like forage or soil samples back to the laboratory. We welcome and encourage using this reliable system of transportation for our laboratory customers.
- Contact the truck stop representative ahead of time, and let them know that you will be dropping off or picking up items at the stop. Their phone number is indicated on each map location below.
- Clearly label any items for pick up so the driver knows he needs to retrieve it.
- Indicate on the label where it needs to go when it arrives. For example, “Please Deliver to Forage Lab, Ithaca, NY”
