This log includes the temperature of foods at delivery sites and signature(s) of person(s) receiving the foods.

2.1.2.2 The transport vehicle is clean and maintained in good repair.

2.1.2.3 The transport vehicle delivers food as near to serving time as possible.

2.1.3 Before making an inspection, make arrangements to have a schedule of the route of delivery with the approximate times of delivery.
