Routing Instructions
(edited 10/30/2019)
FOR SHIPMENTS TO ALKO'S MAIN WAREHOUSE ONLY
(LOCATION #1) USE THE FOLLOWING CHART:
We ask your cooperation and compliance with the following routing instructions. Our traffic management program is designed to provide Alko with the best overall rates and service. Non-compliance with these instructions or unauthorized use of non-listed carriers will result in a chargeback for any additional costs charged to Alko Distributors. Instructions: Clearly mark each carton with shipper and consignee name, address, and the Alko Distributors purchase order number(s). Indicate the total number of cartons, number of pallets, weight, freight description, freight class, and Alko’s purchase order number on our carrier's bill of lading. Palletize and stretch wrap all cartons when shipping by UCL or Central Transport. Combine multiple orders on one bill of lading when shipping to the same address. Alko bases their landed cost calculations on your product description and information. Failure to observe the proper carrier, weight, description, pallet, cube criteria or any other of the instructions will result in a chargeback. Alko pays a pallet rate for UCL shipments. Shippers must consolidate shipments into as few pallets as possible. You must reach a pallet height of 84-90 inches before starting an additional pallet. If more pallets than necessary are used, this will result in a freight chargeback. Also for UCL shipments, do not declare a value for the shipment. There is a declared value charge that is added if there is a declared value listed on the bill of lading. Declared value charges will result in a chargeback. All UPS shipments must be shipped freight collect. Please check the back of your purchase order or contact us at 410-391-4270 for our UPS account number if you do not already have it. Freight collect address: 8801 Kelso Drive, Baltimore, MD 21221. If our UPS account number is not used for all UPS shipments, we will not be responsible for the freight charges. FREIGHT CHARGES MUST BE BILLED FREIGHT COLLECT FOR UCL AND CENTRAL TRANSPORT FOR SHIPMENTS. DELIVERIES ARE ACCEPTED BETWEEN THE HOURS OF: 8:30 AM TO 11:00 AM AND 2:00 PM TO 4:00 PM. (THIS MUST BE WRITTEN ON THE BILL OF LADING.) NOTE: WE NO LONGER USE WRAG TIME/VISION EXPRESS OR XPO LOGISTICS FOR ANY SHIPMENTS. PLEASE DO NOT SHIP USING EITHER OF THESE CARRIERS. ALSO, DO NOT SEND ANY SHIPMENTS BY UPS FREIGHT. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FREIGHT COSTS FOR ANY SHIPMENT THAT IS DELIVERED BY THE WRONG CARRIER.
