IPL St-Damien inbound transportation routing guide

The IPL St-Damien Integrated Supply Chain team is pleased to announce an initiative that will improve transportation management processes in North America through automation and optimization with the use of a Transportation Management System (TMS) for inbound shipments where IPL is payor for freight. You can refer to the instructions below to book the proper transportation servic.

- Parcels with a total weight of 150 lbs or 150 cubic pounds or less: please use FEDEX or Purolator through
  your actual system or access or
  Above 150 cubic pounds, please ship as LTL.

  To calculate the cubic pounds:
  L (po) x L (po) x H (po) / 139 = x (rounded up)
  Ex : 12''x 12''x 12'' = 1728 / 139 = 12.43 rounded up at 13 cubic lbs
  Using this example, you could ship up to 11 boxes for a total of 143 cubic lbs.
  If 12 boxes, this would be a 156 cubic lbs shipment, therefore must be shipped as LTL on a skid.

- For TL or LTL shipments please log on and follow the SOP available in the
 "View Documents" in the left section of the main screen.
