Von Maur EDI Mapping State Routing Requirements
The below described Von Maur EDI Mapping Routing Guides regard to FOB Vendor Warehouse Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas.
Refer to Von Maur EDI Mapping Routing Guides (Part 1) in the previous post.
Von Maur EDI Mapping Routing Guides state that priority must be written on the BOL, in the “SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS” (EDI mapping section) when possible.
Von Maur prefers all LTL shipments are on pallets. Pallets must be standard 48”x40”. Palletized shipments should preferably have 1 PO per pallet. If multiple PO’s are on one pallet, label pallet “mixed PO’s.” It is imperative that PO’s are sorted and loaded by PO # to aid in the unloading and carton count verification at the Von Maur DC.
Do not double stack or turn pallets sideways.
Pallet weight must be included on the BOL, either as part of the product weight, or as a separate line. Stack the heaviest cartons on the bottom. Pallets are not recommended to be stacked higher than 6’ tall.
There should be one BOL per pickup, per day, regardless of the number of POs or pallets/cartons being consigned. PO number(s) must be listed in the P. O. no. field of the shipping label (EDI mapping). When shipping, select “FedEx Ground” as service type, and then select “collect.” Collect will only appear as a billing option once FedEx Ground is selected. It is not necessary to have the Von Maur FedEx account number; Von Maur’s FedEx account number will not be provided.
Von Maur EDI Mapping directives require that Vendor must contact FedEx Ground to arrange for shipment pick up, providing at least 24 hour notice. The shipment will be refused at the Von Maur DC and sent back to the Vendor if FedEx picks up the freight earlier that the ship date, or later than the cancel date on the PO.
DO NOT add insurance charges or declare a value.
All labels (EDI mapping) must be placed on the side of the cartons. Do not cover any other information on cartons, such as barcodes or carton identification labels.
