Supplier Freight Routing
Nott Company has contracted with Freight Pros, formerly Transaver, as our transportation partner. As our supplier, we require you to comply with the following routing instructions unless otherwise informed.
Be sure to adhere to the purchase order instructions when shipments are identified as shipping COLLECT or PREPAID or deemed as a DROP SHIPMENT
If specific needs, such as temperature control, flatbed etc. currently exist, please advise Freight Pros so they can promptly evaluate those needs. Please ensure that personnel within your organization understand and implement the following instructions. Suppliers’ adherence will be monitored, and failure to comply with our specific requests will result in chargebacks.
- “Prepay & Add” shipments are UNACCEPTABLE and should ship “Collect”. Exceptions to collect shipments are those moving third party to Nott Company’s customers when Nott Company has authorized third party billing.
- When possible, combine multiple shipments under a single bill of lading. Do not delay movement more than one day unless instructed by Nott Company.
- All materials must be packed and shipped in accordance with the rules and regulations set forth by the Uniform Freight Classification and Hazardous Materials Regulations. Be sure to include our “Purchase Order Number” and “Quantity Shipped” on all packing slips. Attach a copy to the outside of the shipping container.
