Alko Distributors Inbound Freight Routing Instructions

(edited 1/4/2016)  

 

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 purchase order number on our carrier's bill of lading.  Palletize and stretch wrap all cartons when possible.  Combine multiple orders on one bill of lading when shipping to the same address.  Alko bases their landed cost calculations on you 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.  All UPS shipments must be shipped using 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.
