What Are Red Stag Fulfillment's Requirements for Inbound Shipments?

Updated by Tony Runyan

Our goal at RSF is to get your product in stock as accurately and as quickly as possible. We have processes in place that have been developed over several years of trial and error that help us keep our guarantees. With your cooperation, we have a much greater chance of getting your inventory putaway on the shelf and ready to ship.

  1. Create an ASN.

ASN's are Advance Shipping Notices that tell our team what to expect on your delivery. It is vital that these notices are accurately entered in our system before your delivery arrives.

  1. Request & Confirm a Delivery Appointment.

To allocate dock space & labor required to unload your shipment, a delivery appointment is required. The ASN must be completed prior to this step since our team uses the ASN to schedule the appointment.

Please understand that a request does not constitute a confirmation, our team will need to confirm availability before the appointment is established.

To make a delivery appointment request, you will need to email the appropriate warehouse with the details below:

Warehouse Email Addresses:

Appointment Information to Email (* indicates required information):

  • Date & Time of the desired appointment*
  • Container Number*
  • Client Name*
  • FL or Palletized*
  • Number of cartons (if FL)
  • Number of pallets (if palletized)
  • Live Unload or Drop
  • Product Description
  • ASN

  1. Palletized.

We understand that there are times when product can't be palletized (floor-loaded containers, parcel deliveries, etc.), but deliveries that are palletized require a lot less handling which means they are processed much faster.

The best-case scenario would be receiving standard pallets (48x40 wood pallets) that have only a single SKU per pallet. Again, we understand that in order to optimize space and reduce costs during shipping this may not always be possible.

Note: If standard-sized wood pallets are not used, it may increase processing time & labor cost to ensure product can be safely stored.

  1. Barcoded.

All products within all Red Stag Fulfillment warehouses require a barcode.

These barcodes ensure that we can track the availability and location of all products at any given time and is what allows us to ensure order and inventory accuracy. If your products show up without barcodes, our team will barcode the product for you.

Note: This barcoding process takes time and will, therefore, increase the processing time required.
