EDI Carton Specifications (Hibbett EDI Guidelines)
All merchandise shipped to Hibbett must be packed in conveyable cartons. Do not use jiffy bags, burlap bags, mailing envelopes or plastic bags. Shipping in an invalid container will result in an expense offset.
Use a shipping carton that best fits the merchandise; do not over-pack or under-pack the carton. Carton strength should be sufficient to prevent crushing during transit. Hibbett encourages the use of “environmentally friendly” packing materials whenever possible (recyclable and / or biodegradable). Seal cartons with security tape. Do not place metal straps or string on cartons as they may damage the sortation equipment. Hibbett recommends using theft-deterrent tape on all cartons. If tape is used to secure cartons to a pallet, it should be applied in a manner that does not adversely affect the ability to read the Non-EDI shipping labels and any barcodes that may be included. Some EXCLUSIONS to these requirements apply to bats shipped in bundled boxes.
