EDI Routing Requirements (Transportation Guidelines by DSW)
EDI Routing Requirements relesed by DSW Transportation department will route all shipments when DSW is the responsible party for payment of freight charges. The vendor’s copy of DSW EDI purchase order should reflect the correct commercial and freight related terms for the merchandise. If there are any discrepancies in freight terms or EDI Routing Requirements the vendor should contact the appropriate DSW buyer. Shipment routings not authorized by DSW may result in chargebacks to the vendor including non-payment for transportation services rendered.
Company-controlled domestic EDI routing requirements
A PO is classified as “Domestic” if the merchandise originates within the United States or if the DSW is not the importer of record with U.S. Customs. Domestic PO’s, (originating within the United States), routed by the DSW are designated using the freight term “FOB named point” within the United States and indicate that the DSW is responsible for freight payment using such language as “Freight Collect to DSW”.
the DSW will not be responsible for charges associated with the movement of merchandise from or to a port of entry (drayage, pier pick-up, etc). Any charges related to these movements will be at the vendor’s expense. Under the freight terms of “FOB named point”, the DSW 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 the DSW 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.
Vendor-controlled EDI routing requirements
For POs coded either as Incoterm 2000: DDP Destination (“Delivered Duty Paid”) or FOB DC (U.S. Uniform Commercial Code), the vendor owns the merchandise in-transit, accepts liability for loss or damage in transit, bears and pays the freight charges, and can select its own transportation provider. Notification of the shipment status and delivery estimated times of arrivals are preferred.
