o   DOUBLE CHECK THE SHIPOUT FORM TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE REQUIRED INFO THAT YOU NEED TO PROCESS THE SHIPMENT FOR THE LAB.

o   MAKE SURE THEY PROVIDE YOU THEIR INFORMATION, A CFOP, WHAT THEY ARE SHIPPING, AND A GRANT PURPOSE FOR SHIPPING IF THEY ARE SHIPPING WITH A GRANT CFOP (1-4’S AND 1-5’S.)
