EDI Shipping Instructions state that vendors should contact Sporting Life team to schedule an appointment, and provide the following information for every Purchase Order: PO# Cartons Units Carrier. Vendors should note, the ASN must be sent prior to the goods arriving at NLS. Failure to schedule an appointment OR shipping before/after appointment date may result in refusal of your shipment, or incur non-compliance charges. Please schedule, and follow your appointment to ensure your shipment is not refused at Sporting Life DC.

All shipments must be received at Sporting Life DC within the shipping window. Shipments scheduled to arrive after the cancel date are considered late, which may result in charge-backs to the vendor. Transit days must be accounted for when shipping. Extensions may be granted with approval from the buyer on late shipments, at which point, late discounts may be applied as per the buyer’s instructions.
