1. Clearly label every handling unit with the complete shipper and consignee address and phone number.
2. Apply at least one barcode label with a tracking number (freight bill) to every handling unit.
3. When shipping multiple pieces together as individual handling units, ensure the freight is securely strapped or plastic wrapped together. The shipper/consignee address labels and barcode tracking numbers must be placed on top of the wrapping so it can be read effectively.
4. Ensure your shipment has adequate interior and exterior protective packaging.
5. If you are shipping non-stackable items, place a DO NOT STACK cone on top of your handling unit.
Follow these labelling and packaging tips to ensure your shipment is delivered on time, intact, and damage-free.
Shipper & Consignee Info
Ensure every handling unit is clearly labelled with the complete shipper and consignee address, and phone numbers. We use technology to scan the barcode labels applied to your freight. In the event the barcode cannot be read, the details you provide on the shipper and consignee label will help us identify your freight and minimize delays.
Ensure every handling unit is labelled with at least one barcode label with a tracking number (freight bill). We require the barcode tracking label because it enables our technology to direct your freight to the right location. Freight lacking barcodes will cause transit and delivery delays.
Proper packaging is critical for having your freight delivered on time, intact, and damage free. Select the exterior and interior packaging materials that best suit your commodity.
The Bill of Lading (BOL) is a legal document. When you complete the Day & Ross BOL, you agree to the Terms & Conditions stating that “the goods have been properly packaged and prepared to withstand those risks of damage necessarily incidental to transportation.”
