Deliveries must be registered via e-mail as described below:
Procedure for normal deliveries:
- Day A Registration by 2:00 pm
- Day B Pickup by 4:00 pm
- Day C Delivery at Schaeffler location in Germany
Due to reasons of exceeding transit-time International deliveries need to be registered in alignment with Schaeffler logistics service providers right in time so that agreed delivery time can be met, whereby the registration need to be finished latest till 2:00 pm on day before collection.
Registration and Collection on the same day need to be aligned in advance with Schaeffler logistics service provider.
In the event that the registration is processed on the collection day without alignment in advance or the delivery will be shipped in general too late Schaeffler will keep supplier liable for damages by delay.
Consolidation of commissions
Whenever possible individual orders shall be shipped consolidated to Schaeffler plants unless delivery date will be exceeded.
In case different commissions will be packed into one handling-unit these different commissions have to be separated in that way that after opening of the handling-unit the different commissions can be transported further without any constraints (e.g. separate packaging of different commissions with delivery note on each separate packaging within the handling-unit).
