UPDATE, 3/4 – Shipping Advisory: Olive Branch Inclement Weather
Due to inclement weather in the Memphis area, Diamond's Olive Branch Distribution Center may experience delays in shipping. The area is expecting adverse weather conditions throughout today and tomorrow.
The deadline for Reship Reorders and Pre-packs (scheduled to be received with your 3/18 shipment) has been changed from Thursday to today, Wednesday, March 4th at 5pm. Please make sure you place your orders as soon as possible. In addition, Direct Ship Reorders placed tomorrow will most likely experience delays, therefore we encourage you to place any Direct Ship Reorders today.
At this time, and barring any additional weather related issues, Diamond expects weekly shipments for next week, 3/11, to ship in a timely manner for accounts serviced from our Olive Branch Distribution Center.
Please bear in mind that any weather-related impact will affect the nation’s entire transportation network. Therefore, we encourage you to remain in contact with your carrier to monitor shipments. For quick access to tracking information on the UPS website, we suggest accessing the Shipment Tracking page in the My Account section of Diamond’s Retailer Services Website. Once there, simply click on the tracking number of the shipment you wish to monitor and you will be taken to UPS.com.
We thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you have additional questions regarding this advisory, please contact your Diamond Retailer Services Representative.
