Distressed Load Assistance Denver

For When the Road Gets Rough: Distressed Load Services in Denver, Colorado

In the world of logistics and transportation, one reality we all have to contend with is that sometimes, things don’t go exactly as planned. At Mile High Delivery & Cold Storage, we understand that unexpected incidents can occur during transit, causing what is known as a “distressed load.” This can range from a load out of temperature to shifted load, damaged goods, and various other unforeseen complications.

Our Distressed Load Assistance service is specifically designed to tackle these challenges. Distressed Load Assistance is a vital provision in our industry, designed to provide urgent, expert help when a load encounters issues on the road or at the attempted delivery/receiving location.

Our primary aim is to minimize losses, ensuring that your shipment reaches its destination in the most efficient manner possible, irrespective of the hurdles that might arise along the way.

Mile High Delivery & Cold Storage’s Distressed Load Assistance Process

At Mile High Delivery & Cold Storage, we follow a systematic and efficient approach to address distressed loads, ensuring every incident is handled with the utmost precision and care.

Initial Assessment

As soon as we receive a report of a distressed load, our team initiates a preliminary evaluation to understand the severity and nature of the load. 


Once the load arrives, our team conducts a detailed evaluation to devise an effective recovery plan. We consider factors like the type and state of the goods, and the condition of the products/pallets. We take pictures throughout the entire process so you can see what steps have been taken to ensure the load is returned to its original condition.

Load Rescue and Remediation

Depending on the circumstances, this might involve repalletizing, restacking, moving goods to cold storage, relabeling, or other necessary actions to prevent further damage and get the shipment back on its journey as quickly as possible.


After the immediate issue is resolved, we provide a comprehensive report detailing the incident and the actions taken. Pictures/videos are provided to understand the work that was completed/involved. If we are redelivering, we also remain in close contact with you, providing updates until your cargo safely reaches its final destination.
