1. Receiving Guidelines

All inbound material should be addressed to J.M. Field Marketing c/o Client Name. All material that adheres to receiving guidelines will be available for order access within 24 hours of receipt. Shipment packing list must accompany all inbound material. The carton containing the packing slip should be marked Packing List Enclosed. Failure to provide packing slip with receipt of material will result in an item receipt delay and $45/SKU correction surcharges. Receiving, pickup and delivery hours are Monday through Friday, 9-4 p.m. EST. Delivery appointments are required for all palletized shipments greater than (5) units.

2. Product Labeling

All inbound material must adhere to J.M. Field carton labeling specifications as stated below. Failure to ship and/or deliver products to JMF complying with the stated receiving guidelines will result in significant cost and time delays in order to remedy. All boxes should be sequentially numbered and labeled noting the product contents inside them. Any boxes containing more than one of the exact same product SKUs must have each individual product SKUs contained within labeled so as to be easily identified amongst the others. A box labeling correction surcharge of $5/box will apply to all boxes received that are not labeled properly. A product SKU labeling correction surcharge of $10/SKU will apply to all product SKUs received that are not labeled properly. All necessary client inventory counts conducted to obtain accurate information will be billed at $35/hour at JMF discretion.

4. Packing Slips

Every shipment that is delivered to JMF facilities must have a packing list attached; and digital copy sent to your account manager prior to arrival (if possible). Below are a few points of packing slip, explained:

Important Note: If you’re delivering a shipment of multiple pallets or boxes, you must create packing slips for each pallet/box individually.

  • Reference Number: this is a crucial piece of information for any shipment that arrives at JMF because your account manager must be able to identify an arrival quickly and with absolute accuracy. The reference number should be displayed in two places minimum: (1) on the Packing Slip in the field on the top-right, and also (2) displayed clearly somewhere on the box or pallet.
  • Item #/Product Name/QTY: This is vital information about the products you’ve sent us. Any time product arrives to us, we absolutely need these three pieces of information. If it’s not included on the Packing Slip, we’ll have to manually count and identify your materials and additional receiving costs will incur.
  • Total Boxes/Total Pallets: We request this info because if something is missing or arrives damaged, we want to know quickly so we can report back to you.
