*Comprehensive Client Support (Stewardship Program)
The Stewardship Program is for clients with a low number of orders (5 or less per week) and using a smaller amount of warehouse space for their inventory (64 cubic feet or less). Those clients qualify for our Stewardship Program and receive a discounted Comprehensive Client Support fee ($25 less per week) of $15.00 per week. The Stewardship Program is applied automatically to qualified clients.

**Non-Compliance Receipts
To keep things speedy for everyone when we are receiving inventory, we need clear, clean communication universally. When there are errors or if data is missing, those delays affect our whole system. Here are situations that can trigger non-compliant receipt fees:

  • Missing packing slips, or packing slips sent post arrival via Zendesk
  • Business name on Advance Shipment Notice isn’t in our system
  • No Advance Shipment Notice (ASN), or ASN data missing
  • Inventory Receiving: SKU not entered into system prior to arrival

Conditions Triggering Pallet Replacement or Restacking

  • Two or more broken, split or missing bottom slats.
  • Two or more broken, split or missing top slats.
  • Damaged or broken mains (the 3 perpendicular heavier studs). If these supports have been repaired and they are sturdy, the pallet is usable.
  • Any pallet that uses composite or sawdust compressed blocks as separators.
  • Any pallet that is not standard 40″ wide x 48″ deep dimensions.
  • Plastic pallets.
  • Pallet height exceeding 54″ in height—when the full pallet will be inventoried on pallet racking shelves and the tall pallet needs to be reduced to two shorter pallets to fit on the shelves. Or for safety reasons where heavy boxes at the top of a tall pallet might fall.
  • Any pallet that shows overt signs of structural weakness that could present a potential safety issue.

In the rare case that a client should need to close an account that has inventory in stock, eFulfillment Service will pull that inventory for you, the way we would if we were shipping a large non-customer order, with a minimum charge of $40. During the closeout process, all applicable fees will be charged, including comprehensive client support and storage. Excessive handling includes repacking in boxes less than 25 in. or 63.5 cm. Standard pick and pack fees are billed based on the inventory counts as shown in the database. Manual counts require additional pick and pack fees, and may extend your timeline. Location auditing is required for closeout completion. Each bin and location must be checked for inventory, even if the inventory database shows zero inventory in that location. Standard Pick & Pack—under 5 lbs. (2.27 kg) is $0.35 per item; Standard Pick & Pack—under 5 lbs. (2.27 kg) with manual count is $0.50 per item; Standard Pick & Pack—at 5 lbs. (2.27 kg) & above is $0.75 per pick + $0.35 per lb.; Labeling (labor + material) is $0.25 per item; Location Auditing $1 per location; and Excessive Handling is $0.30 per item.
