Designer Shoes Warehouse EDI Routing department will route all shipments when the company is the responsible party for payment of freight charges. The vendor’s copy of the company EDI purchase order should reflect the correct commercial and freight related terms for the merchandise.
Designer Shoes Warehouse EDI Routing and Transportation not authorized by the company may result in chargebacks to the vendor including non-payment for transportation services rendered.
Designer Shoes Warehouse EDI Routing (Domestic)
A PO is classified as “Domestic” if the merchandise originates within the United States or if the company is not the importer of record with U.S. Customs. Domestic PO’s (originating within the United States), routed by the company are designated using the freight term “FOB named point” within the United States and indicate that the company is responsible for freight payment using such language as “Freight Collect to DSW”. Under the freight terms of “FOB named point”, the company owns the merchandise while in-transit, accepts liability for loss or damage in transit, and pays the standard freight charges. Freight charges are paid according to Company terms specified on the PO. Vendors will be expected to pay for any freight charges incurred as a result of non-compliance with PO terms.
Designer Shoes Warehouse EDI Routing (Vendor-controlled)
From time to time vendors may have full containers of merchandise for the company; however, the FOB is listed as “named point” within the United States to a location other than vendor’s DC. Transportation will accept the FOB point to “a DSW Consolidator” or “Columbus, OH Rail Yard” thereby reducing the cost to the vendor and decreasing the throughput to the Company. The vendor MUST contact the Company’s Transportation Manager prior to vessel unloading at origin to discuss terms and procedures. When ocean vessel is at the pier, the vendor will need to release shipment EDI ASN data as well as all other documentation to the company.
The company is a participant to C-TPAT, (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism), therefore, the “origin” seal must appear on the Delivery Order and all other documentation. If seal is does not match the original from origin and vendor or vendor’s broker can not provide acceptable circumstance, (e.g. customs inspection at point of entry), container may be refused prior to local pickup and/or may be subject to customs inspection and/or PO cancellation. Domestic shipments with missing or “altered” seal, may be subject to inspection and/or delayed delivery or refusal prior to delivery at final destination.
The Company is Sarbanes-Oxley, (SOX), compliant, so any alteration to the amount of cartons shipped that deviates from the cartons requested must be accounted for by the vendor/shipper within 24 hours after shipment has departed vendors/shippers facility.
