How to book a delivery slot at the NDC

  • You must book deliveries to the distribution centre before arrival. This helps us to run operations smoothly and efficiently in the goods receiving area.
  • You must arrange all bookings at least three working days prior to the delivery date. The centre is open to receive deliveries on Monday to Friday, from 6am to 8pm.
  • Once repeat bookings are agreed with the relevant planner, you don't usually have to follow them up.
  • The Materials Department will send you a purchase order (PO) with a delivery date. The slot you book should match this. Along with the date and time, you will also receive a booking reference number.
  • On arrival at the NDC, you should provide the PO numbers and the number of pallets you have.
  • If for any reason you are unable to deliver on the date you agree, please notify the appropriate person in the Materials Department.
