End of Year Shipping Schedule

The BDSC's shipping schedule for the end of 2021 is detailed below (for Thanksgiving holiday-related changes, click here). Ordering deadlines for receiving stocks in 2021 depend on your account type and your shipment method (you can see your account type by logging in and clicking on "ACCOUNT" in the top right menu).

If your organization closes at year end, take postal and international courier transit times for your location into account when timing your request and your payment.

To help reduce stock loss during cold weather, we recommend you use a courier if they are available for your country. To add courier option(s) to your account, contact Kim Cook BEFORE placing any orders for winter shipments

 

Please note the following deadlines and shipment dates if you want to receive stocks in December (note there is a deadline for international shipments in November!)
