RESHMI’S GROUP INC. CUSTOMER POLICY

This Reshmi’s Group Inc. Customer Policy (“Policy”) sets forth Reshmi’s Group Inc (“RGI” or “we”) standard practices and procedures related to certain aspects of our relationship, including the order, inventory, delivery and return of Products. For Customers who buy from us pursuant to a contract, this Policy is hereby incorporated into that Agreement. Any capitalized terms contained in this Policy that are not defined herein will have the meanings given in the Agreement between RGI and Customer.

Placing Orders:

Customer must place their order at least 48 hours in advance of their scheduled route delivery. Any orders that are received after the deadline will be delayed until the next scheduled route delivery. You may submit expedited order request at least 24 hours before your schedule route delivery for an additional $100 charge which will be added to your invoice. Same day orders for delivery are NOT allowed and will be rejected or queued for next delivery without any prior notification from us. 

​Will Call:

Will call orders must be called at least 2 hours in advance for same day pick-up. We will do our best to have your order ready; however, we cannot guarantee that it will be ready within the 2-hour window. Also, you may be charged a $50 fee, if you fail to pick up your will call order.

 

​Minimum Order Requirements

Most local orders are delivered on a RGI’s truck and are subject to a minimum order requirement and/or standard delivery charge, not including fuel surcharges, as listed below.

  • Minimum order value must be $500 or more for free delivery (not including fuel surcharges).

  • All orders may be subject to fuel surcharges including the ones that meet the free delivery criteria.

  • Orders that do not meet the minimum dollar value threshold will be accessed delivery charge of $100 ($50 for large customers), not including fuel surcharge, plus any applicable charges such as liftgate fee or inside delivery charges.  

  • Small orders (less than $500) are not delivered outside of 50-mile radius

 

We have a right to refuse delivery if the customer does not pay for the goods, if asked, or may have a past due balance on their account.

​Product Pricing & Availability:

  • Product price is listed on the invoice from the date you place the order. The price shown do not include shipping/freight cost.

  • Prices shown do not include sales, use or other taxes. Expedited shipping or other similar charges, if available, are additional and listed under freight cost within the invoice.

  • Products may not be available for immediate delivery. In the unlikely event that a product becomes unavailable, RGI reserves the right to cancel that order.

 

​Split Case Surcharge:

​If a Customer requests that we sell Product in units less than the standard case/containers, RGI has the right to charge an additional fee on the transaction.

 

​Average Case Size Requirements:

For our contract Customers, if the case size of any Product increases over the current case size of a Product, we may increase the margin in an amount sufficient to compensate us for the loss in revenue resulting from the size increase.

 

​Local Deliveries:

​We will assign specific delivery days and maintain open delivery windows for each Customer location; however, we do not guarantee set date and time for any of our deliveries.

  • At the time of delivery, your designated representative should receive the shipment and sign for the Products. All shortages, damages or rejected Products should be noted on the invoice at time of delivery.

  • Delivery dates that fall on a holiday may be rescheduled at RGI’s discretion.

  • All cases must be counted before the RGI driver and Customer sign the invoice/other document related to the order. All invoice/document copies must be signed.

  • Once the Customer has signed for a specific quantity of cases and the RGI driver has left the premises, the shipment is the Customer’s responsibility. Customers will not be credited for shortages once the invoice has been signed and the RGI driver has gone.

  • Frozen and refrigerated Products should be stored immediately upon receipt.

 

Unloading:

  • For safety reasons, we do not allow Customer’s employees on the RGI delivery trucks unless prior written authorization is provided by RGI’s Management team.

  • The driver will unload and place all orders in designated areas. The driver is not responsible for placing cases/pallets inside Customer’s location or storage shelves.

  • For tailgate deliveries, the driver will bring all Products to the rear of the trailer. Customer’s employees will be responsible for taking the Product from the rear of the trailer into the Customer premises.

​Returns:

  • ​Customer has 24 hours (per the terms & conditions) from the time of delivery to notify us about (i) any concealed Product damage or other Products it seeks to reject, or (ii) with respect to Products not jointly checked in, any shortages, damages, or other Products it seeks to reject. Customer's right to return Product will be subject to properly maintaining, storing, and segregating Products in a manner that ensures that non-damaged and non-rejected Products are viable for resale. Arrangements for Product returns must be made through our order department. Refrigerated ready-to-eat Products may not be returned.

  • In order to receive a credit for returned Product, the Product must be unopened (unless there is concealed damage), non-perishable, in good condition and with adequate shelf life remaining to allow for resale. A restocking fee and other charges may apply. In the event a pick-up and/or return is approved by RGI, Customer must advise the RGI customer service representative within 72 hours of Product delivery or at the time the next order is placed, whichever is earlier. Customer must provide the following information:

    • Reason for the return.

    • Invoice number for the delivered Product.

    • Product code number, quantity, price and description.
