How long will it take to receive my product?

What if I did not receive all of my order?

  • The sales representative can check for backordered product. If an item is backordered, the product will be shipped as soon as it is available.
  • Check for a shortage as goods are being unloaded. Count the cartons, containers or items, your count should match exactly what is stated on the freight bill. If there is a discrepancy, write an exact description of the shortage on the freight bill before signing for the goods, both on the driver's copy and yours. Whenever possible, state the exact item that is short. The driver must also sign the freight bill indicating he agrees that the shipment is short. This action will alert the freight company to make every effort to locate the missing freight.
  • "Received 32 12qrt cases 700 Supreme, 1 12qrt case 700 Supreme short"
  • "Shrink wrap torn, received 14drums, 3 drums short"
