All products must be shipped according to Shaw’s Shipping instructions. If instructions are to ship palletized, then products must be shipped on either CHEP, PECO, iGPS rental pallets or one-way pallets meeting Shaw’s current pallet specifications (GMA Grade A, 4-way, 48”x40”). Shaw’s does not accept Slip-sheets in lieu of pallets for shipments at its Distribution Centers. Also, the following should be noted in the body of the bill of lading – “Carrier: Do not cut shrink-wrap, do not break down pallet”.
Shaw’s prefers that all products be shipped to Shaw’s Ti & Hi specifications. If your company does not have Shaw’s Ti & Hi specifications, it is your responsibility to obtain them from your Shaw’s procurement representative. Freight not tendered to the carrier on either CHEP, PECO, iGPS or GMA Grade A, 4-way, 48″ x 40″ pallets in conformance with Shaw’s instructions and pallet Ti & Hi specifications, must be segregated by the carrier onto Shaw’s supplied pallets at theshipper’s expense and may result in refusal of the shipment at Shaw’s dock and/or charge-backs against your company for additional costs, lost sales, and administrative expenses.
When shipping multiple Purchase Orders on a single day, each purchase order must be tendered to the carrier on a separate bill of lading, and in a sorted and segregated manner. Two or more Purchase Orders cannot be mixed on one pallet and, the product must be shipped in such a way that the Purchase Orders are clearly, individually identifiable. Failure to ship to these specifications could result in refusal of the freight at Shaw’s dock and/or charge-backs to your company account for additional costs, lost sales, and administrative expenses.
