Target has contracted with third party providers to help manage freight flow through our Canadian supply chain.
For vendors shipping from the U.S. or Canada:
Target has engaged a third party to manage our cross-border and domestic transportation logistics. Detailed training will be provided as we get closer to ship dates, but there will be a web portal used to request all delivery appointments at the RDCs and freight pick up at collect vendors’ factories.
If you are a prepaid vendor, you will be responsible for delivering your merchandise to Target’s RDC on time and in full. Delivery appointments must be made online for all shipments. Instructions will be included in training.
If you are shipping collect, you must request pick up of your freight through the web portal. Specific freight requirements, such as temperature sensitivities and required delivery dates, will be captured at that time. Once your freight is routed, carrier information will be posted online.
For vendors outside of the U.S. or Canada:
Target will be leveraging overseas consolidators to manage the handling of cargo in the country of origin on our behalf.
If you are an FOB vendor, you will be responsible for delivering the PO to the port of loading or to Target’s nominated consolidation warehouse (if less than a container load).
If you are an FCA vendor, the overseas consolidator will work with you to arrange the cargo pick-up from your factory and will deliver it to the port. These arrangements will be made upon receiving PO bookings from you.
