Packing and Marking Requirements

 

Unnecessary Materials Guidelines

 

Beall’s recognizes the need to include certain packing or protective material on products.  However a considerable amount of waste and labor is incurred to remove materials considered “unnecessary”.

 

·        No safety pins, straight pins, or pins of any type, in any category of merchandise, for any reason, except Boy’s and Men’s folded dress shirts.

·        No tiebacks or clips of any type, in any category of merchandise.

·        No tissue or paper or other materials placed inside garments, in pockets or sleeves, or folds, or wrapped around hangers that will fall off while garment is on display on our selling floor or that requires removal at point of receipt.  Plastic and cardboard collar inserts in Boy’s and Men’s folding dress shirts are OK.

·        Use protective packing that can easily be removed in one motion.  Example: poly bags covering garments should easily pull away; plastic and cardboard protecting handbags or luggage etc. must not require scissors or knives to remove.  If protective plastic is necessary, wherever possible bundle multiple items NOT singles.

 

 

Store Cross-dock Packing/Label Requirements

 

Packing Requirements

  1. Store Cross-dock merchandise is to be packed by store with the quantity assortment, style, color, and size as stated in the PO.
  2. Pack each PO in separate cartons. Do not combine multiple POs in one carton.
  3. Pack each store assortment in separate cartons.
  4. Do not under pack cartons.  Ideally, each store’s assortment should be contained in the least number of cartons possible.
  5. Seal with distinctive tape, i.e. company name / logo or security tape.  Do not use clear tape.
  6. Do not use metal, plastic bands, or straps.  Cartons must be of a construction that will withstand transportation handling.
  7. Individual carton dimensions cannot be less than 9”L x 7”W or 4”H or exceed 351/2”L x 23”W x 22”H unless an individual item exceeds these dimensions.

Label Requirements

  1. All Store Cross-dock shipments to Beall’s Distribution Centers require a UCC128 label (see UCC128 Label Samples in Appendix).
  2. UCC128 information must be included in the ASN.
  3. Do not cover your UCC-128 label with tape of any type. Covering the label with clear tape creates “reflection” which causes your label to be unreadable.
  4. UCC128 label must be placed on longest, shortest side of the carton, 1¼ inches from the natural bottom of the carton and 1¼ inches from the side of the carton.  No labels can be on the top of the carton (see UCC128 Label Placement in Appendix).
