DCL Receiving Information

All receipts are required to have an Advanced Shipment Notification in DCL’s system. The ASN submission is a feature in eFactory 10, which allows you to submit the ASN directly in our system. An alternative method is to send DCL the ASN information via the ASN API. Please ensure the information is accurate and submitted at least 48 hours in advance. This allows us to schedule planning so we can more efficiently receive your goods into our warehouse. There will be a $500 penalty if ASN information is not submitted to DCL in a timely manner.

Under no conditions will DCL accept freight collect and/or C.O.D. materials.
If container delivery, please call 24 hours prior to delivery for appointment/schedule.
