EDI Routing Instructions For DSW Vendors
EDI Routing Instructions given below refer to vendor-controlled routings. From time to time vendors may have full containers of merchandise for the DSW; 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 DSW.
The vendor MUST contact the DSW’s Transportation Manager prior to vessel unloading at origin to discuss EDI Routing instructions and procedures. When ocean vessel is at the pier, the vendor will need to release shipment ASN data as well as all other documentation to the DSW.
The DSW 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 DSW 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. Failure to notify Transportation in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 614-872-1559, may result in a charge back and/or return of merchandise at vendor’s expense.
Direct shipments to stores are prohibited, unless specifically stated on the PO. All routing instructions for these shipments are the responsibility of the DSW buyer. The DSW expects all domestic orders to ship complete within “Start Ship and the Cancel Date” listed on the PO. Partial shipment of orders or shipping from multiple vendor locations MUST be preapproved by the DSW buyer prior to merchandise shipment. The vendor must notify Transportation of such approval when submitting routing request. All partial orders shipping from same location must be identified by SKU and shipment quantity on routing request form prior order “Start Ship” window.
