Costco Shipping

Susan Walker - Monday, May 04, 2015

Costco’s shipping logistics are complex to say the least. With such an efficient and rule-bound system, vendors must be up to par to make the cut. For example, all Costco Wholesale orders are considered “Shipper Load and Count.” What does that mean you might ask? Well, the vendor is therefore responsible to ensure the order is properly packed and loaded according to Costco’s guidelines and standards to prevent any transit damage and tampering. Everything is at the vendor’s expense and responsibility when it comes to the Bill of Lading, piece count of the load, and driver count and appointments. It is easy to let these pieces fall through the cracks.


This month, we will delve into the different areas of Costco’s shipping requirements, including the following topics:


  • Pallets

  • Shipping terms

  • Containers and Trailers

  • Preferred Carriers

  • E-Commerce

  • Third Party Shipping

  • And More


As you navigate Costco’s shipping requirements, you may find they are even more complex than you might have originally anticipated. Having an experienced representative to check your steps will ensure fluidity, so partner with VendorCo today by contacting us at costcorep@vendorco.com.
