To: Bealls Valued Business Partner

 

Dear Business Partners:

As of January 1, 2019, Bealls Inc. has transitioned preferred providers from UPS to FedEx for parcel shipments. Bealls Inc. defines parcel shipments as shipments less than 250 lbs. and less than 25 cases.

Moving forward, Bealls Inc. requires that you use FedEx for shipping parcel shipments directly to or from any Bealls Inc. facilities. Please understand failure to comply with this requirement will result in freight charges deducted from your invoice and a $275 preferred provider non-compliance fee.

If you have any questions or need the appropriate FedEx Account Number, please reach out to Bealls Inc. Transportation Department at: Traffic@beallsinc.com.  Thank you in advance for your compliance. 

 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Taylor

Director - Inbound Transportation

Consolidator information

·         The vendor has the responsibility to arrange for the shipment to the consolidator.

·         If a vendor selects to use their own truck or a third party provider to make deliveries to the consolidator, the date the merchandise is delivered to the consolidator is the official pickup date for Bealls. The carrier must provide vendor's bill of lading to the consolidator.

·         It is the vendor’s responsibility to ensure that the consolidator picks up within the designated shipping window.   

·         The consolidators will not accept shipments sent via small package carriers (UPS, FedEx, etc.).

·         If you arranged with the consolidator for a pick up and he does not make the pick up on the scheduled day, or if you have any problems with our consolidator, call City Logistics at dispatch@cityx.com Dispatch Office can be reached at from the main phone menu option #2.

Therefore, vendors who choose to use our consolidator’s trucking services are required to pay our consolidator. Not doing so will result in a charge back from Bealls inclusive of full freight plus a $275.00 administrative fee.

 

 

Defining Prepaid orders

 

If your order is prepaid this means that you the vendor are responsible for paying the cost of transportation from your warehouse to the Carson consolidation point.
