Ship Date

The ship date is the date your goods are ready to move. That might mean the date your supplier tells you to pick up the goods, or the date the goods are changing hands for the first time. If you have never ordered goods from your factory before, you shouldn’t request a quote until you have the ship date. Changes in ship date can affect your quotes, and in most cases, will force your provider to reevaluate your quote when your shipment is ready.
