He will have to provide a description of the person passing the check and accepting the goods.

FIND OUT IF THE DRIVER OBTAINED A DRIVER LICENSE OR SOME OTHER FORM OF IDENTIFICATION FROM THE PERSON PASSING THE CHECK.

If you are not able to obtain the information you are requesting, tell them that you will make sure that all responsible or involved parties (driver, log person, warehouse manager, and terminal manager) will be given subpoenas to appear in court.
