Discrepancies (Over/Short/Damage)

Checking on an Order


  • Freight Line Carriers are not responsible for reporting any type of delivery issue to Sysco Guest Supply LLC.  All issues must be reported directly to Customer Service.
  • All carriers are expected to perform an inside delivery, which is defined as ‘inside the first door, outside of the elements, in a location, that does not inhibit foot traffic and/or cause a fire/safety hazard.   The driver is not responsible for moving the freight to any location within the property, removing the wrap, breaking down the pallet, stocking shelves and/or removing the pallet.
  • If the customer and/or carrier have any concerns with possible damage that may occur by delivering the shipment inside, an alternative delivery location should be indicated by the customer.
  • Drivers are not permitted to use any property equipment to transport product (i.e. bellman’s cart) unless authorized by the hotel management.
  • Signing the Bill of Lading transfers title/ownership and responsibility for the merchandise from the Seller to the Buyer.  Therefore you, as the buyer, should count the total number of packages being delivered.  If there is a shortage, overage, or damage it must be noted on the Bill of Lading. If it is not reported as a discrepancy on the Bill of Lading the credit will not be issued.
  • After the driver leaves the property, check the order against the Packing List provided.  The Packing List will be attached to the last case shipped as part of that order.  If the Packing List cannot be located please contact Customer Service immediately.  
  • After checking the order, if there is a shortage, overage, or damage please call Customer Service within 48 hours.  If these discrepancies are not reported within 48 hours a credit will not be issued.
For UPS Deliveries:
  • When UPS is making a delivery, count the total number of packages.  
  • The Packing List is placed only on one of the boxes being shipped out of the total order.  If the order has 20 boxes, only one will have this label.  Unfortunately, UPS sometimes breaks up the orders and delivers over the course of the day.
  • Once the UPS driver scans the packages at the time of delivery, the package is deemed to have been delivered.
You must notify us:
  • Once you have compared all cartons to the detailed Packing List and Bill of Lading accompanying the shipment.
    • Within 48 hours of delivery of any discrepancies on the total count (over and/or short), including specific items/counts that may be discrepant, including damages (if any).
    • Within 48 hours of delivery of specific item discrepancies (items not ordered, items not received, damaged items) if not included in the original report.
    • If these discrepancies are not reported within 48 hours a credit will not be issued.
    • Within 15 days of delivery of any concealed damages (i.e. item in case does not match the labels on the outside or what was ordered).

If you receive merchandise not ordered, you will have the option to purchase or return to our Distribution Center.

If you did not receive merchandise that was ordered, we will make arrangements to re-ship the missing merchandise or issue a credit if an invoice was generated.

If you receive merchandise that is damaged, note the information on the Bill of Lading, describe the damage to us, and take pictures if possible.  We will issue you a credit and instructions for the disposition of the merchandise.
