All Distribution Centres operate a booking schedule for all palletised deliveries. This allows suppliers and transport providers to have surety of a free delivery window.
The booking information should include Staples NZ purchase order number and vender, pallet qty and a requested time slot if you have one.
Contact details and preferred communication method for each location is as below.
The booking time slot needs to be adhered to, ensuring all providers get a prompt response unload and turnaround.
Booking times and requirements are stipulated by location as below.
Deliveries in all locations are only accepted between the hours stipulated for each location.
Any variances to delivery volume, purchase order or time slot will be marked and notified back to the procurement team.
Any courier parcel freight which is non-palletised can be delivered between the delivery hours and does not require a booking slot or timeframe. This should not exceed 10 ctns at any one time. Large volumes of ctns as courier freight may be rejected and requested to be palletised and rebooked.
All deliveries must be signed for by a Staples NZ Associate or scanned with an approved ATL barcode label.
Staples NZ do not operate a Chep account, we are happy to offer Chep pallets as one to one swaps where we have Chep pallets available; if a location does not have a Chep pallet available then it is the transport provider’s requirement to complete the appropriate Chep pallet variance form. A transport provider cannot return to Staples at a later date requesting additional Chep pallets for a previous delivery.
Staples NZ will not hold or stockpile Chep pallets for a transport provider or vender, however we will endeavour to have Chep pallets available for one to one swap outs where ever possible.
