The LDB has released the following notice regarding misinformation about holiday shipping:
The LDB will continue to take orders and ship all products (stocked and spec) for our wholesale customers throughout the month of December. It has been suggested that LDB will not be shipping spec products following December 10th – this information is incorrect. It will be business as usual through the holiday season.
The holiday season does see increases in demand and capacity, so we have encouraged all customers to order slower moving products early, to ensure product is available during the busy weeks of December. Customers are also encouraged to use the new inventory visibility tool and enhanced product search function on our Web Store to help determine what products are in stock at both the LDB and Agent Warehouses.
To help manage holiday demand and capacity, we have also:
- Adjusted our fiscal period for December to five weeks, providing an extra week for Wholesale Price Promotions
- Increased our Distribution Centre Receiving/Picking/Shipping to six days a week (24 hours a day)
- Focused on collaborating with both suppliers and retailers to better utilize forecasts
We thank you for your business, and we are dedicated to supporting you throughout the busy holiday period.
