Scheduling Delivery

All loads must be scheduled for delivery within the Logan Inbound Appointment System. Any material arriving without having scheduled an appointment may not be unloaded (at Logan’s sole determination) and Logan will not be responsible for any resulting charges. In the event an appointment is missed, the load must be rescheduled for a new appointment time or if time permits the material may be unloaded on a standby basis.

Any load arriving greater than 120 minutes late for the scheduled appointment time may be subject to not being unloaded at Logan discretion and the load having to be rescheduled for the next available time.

Shipments may be scheduled by accessing the Logan Inbound Appointment System by approved personnel. The shipment information including; purchase order numbers, material type shipped (NO MORE THAN THREE (3) MATERIAL TYPES PER LOAD), piece count and weights for each material type, material source (yard), package description, seal number, ship weights (gross, tare and net). Bill of lading number and carrier are optional when scheduling the appointment, but are required for delivery. It will be required to edit the initial appointment with updated more accurate information concerning the shipment before arrival at Logan Aluminum.

Split Loads

Documentation must support the material on the truck. The recommendation for loading split loads is to load the material type with the greatest quantity first. Then load the material type with the second greatest quantity next. Then the remainder of the material can be loaded.

Material Weights

All loads will be weighed on certified truck scales prior to and after unloading. If there is a deviation >1% between shipped gross weight to received gross weight, a tally weight may be performed by receiving personnel.  Tally weights shall govern in cases outside of 1%. The material for the load will be held electronically until the discrepancy in weights is settled. The vendor will be notified as soon as possible and will have options of how to settle the discrepancy.

  • Option 1 – The vendor can accept the weights provided by Logan Receiving with verifying documentation.
  • Option 2 – The vendor can request a tally weight. Once a tally weight is requested, the results then become the final received weight and the material is released for consumption.
  • Option 3 – The vendor can request the return of the material if not agreeing to the weight difference. The cost of extra handling will be back charged to the vendor.

UBC’s will be automatically accepted for any discrepancy less than 1500 pounds.  The 1% variance rule will not apply to UBC.

The vendor has 24 hours, after the time of receipt, to respond. Lack of a response within this time-frame will result in the automatic acceptance of the Logan received weight.

If the received weight is greater than the reported ship weight, Logan Aluminum reserves the right to enter the load using Logan received weight without completing a tally of the load.
