Keep Space has established receiving requirements for inbound parcels and pallets at our warehouses. Failure to meet these requirements may result in additional fees, as outlined below. A standard receiving process includes:

1.1.1 Ensuring each inbound is added to the Keep Space Platform before arrival, providing details of all SKUs, quantities, and the carrier responsible for the order.

1.1.2 Providing identifiable SKU IDs and readable barcodes for each product landing, allowing for efficient scanning and documentation.

1.1.3 Ensuring that boxes and cartons are securely taped and sealed, and pallets are properly wrapped upon arrival at the warehouse inbound areas.

1.1.4 Attaching a completed packing list of the inbound order for sender confirmation.

1.1.5 Labelling boxes weighing over 22kg as “overweight” for the safety of our operational team.

1.1.6 Applying inbound order number stickers to boxes for system recording and readability.

 

1.2 Inbound of Containers

Keep Space has established receiving requirements for inbound containers at our warehouses. Failure to meet these requirements may result in additional fees. A standard receiving process includes:

1.2.2 Container shipping companies at the last stretch are coordinated with our operations team to ensure space availability and time of holding.

1.2.3 Limiting container holding time to no more than 3 days, requiring coordination with the operations team for arrival and removal.

 

1.3 Importing 

1.3.1 Keep Space is not an importer of products or SKUs to the warehouses. Your organisation is responsible for preparing its own importation requirements for goods into Keep Space Fulfilment Centers.

1.3.2 If any fees, duties, or taxes apply to shipments, these fees will be invoiced to your account through the wallet feature and included in the weekly invoice runs within the Keep Space platform.

 

1.4 Inbound discrepancies  

1.4.1 In cases where inbound orders arriving at Keep Space Fulfilment Centres are inaccurate, this information will be added to your order chat information for reference. Depending on the extent of additional work required for clarification and data improvement with your suppliers, inbound error administration fees may be charged.

1.4.2 Inbound orders should be generated on the platform for SKUs intended for distribution across our Fulfilment Centers. Inbound orders generated for returns will be cancelled by our operations and support team.

1.4.3 Incorrect sizing and weight information for SKUs in the system may incur an hourly rate for additional administration work to update the SKUs.

1.4.4 If a discrepancy is found in inventory counts compared to declared order totals within an inbound, Keep Space will take responsibility for declaring the count total of the landed goods. Photographs may be taken if necessary for discrepancies beyond 15% of differences in counts.

1.4.5 Users within your organisation are responsible for the accuracy of SKU attribute information. They should provide Keep Space with accurate, complete, and sufficient information for the SKUs placed on the platform.

 

2. Storage

2.1 Cubic Storage Management

2.1.1 Keep Space operates based on cubic measurements to calculate SKU volume, which is then multiplied by the quantity. This total volume is considered as the organisation’s storage usage, and it’s important to note that this storage usage is invoiced according to specific billing cycle timeframes.

2.1.2 Pallet and shelf spacing are not separately charged; charges apply based on cubic usage of the SKU itself.

2.1.3 Keep Space reserves the right to determine the storage locations for your SKUs as appropriate for operational processes.

2.1.4 Unfit, damaged, dangerous, illegal, below-standard, or special attention-requiring SKUs may be refused, disposed of, or returned to your organisation at your cost.

2.1.5 You will receive an email notification one month prior to the shipment of goods for collection, allowing your organisation’s users access to the return storage for collection.

 

2.2 Return Storage Management

2.2.1 Keep Space operates return storage separately from the main warehousing area. The storage space allocated to your organisation is charged as part of a minimum cubic volume per week rate, whether or not the space is utilised for returns during that invoice period.

2.2.2 Access to return storage is available to your organisation and its registered users within the portal. Access may require identification verification, such as a driver’s licence.

2.2.3 Four times a year, Keep Space ships returns storage from your return area to the head office on file within the Keep Space Portal. These shipping dates are on the first day of each financial quarter:

  • 1st January
  • 1st April
  • 1st July
  • 1st October

2.2.3.1 If your organisation does not provide a head office address within your portal for return shipments and our operations and support team cannot retrieve an address within a reasonable period (30 days after the return shipping dates in clause 2.2.3), Keep Space reserves the right to dispose of the returns.

2.2.4 Your organisation authorises Keep Space to ship returns to your head office and apply the charge to the next invoice period.

2.2.5 After a user from your organisation has collected items from return storage, they are responsible for removing the returns and themselves from the fulfilment centre to facilitate ongoing operations.

2.2.6 Any SKUs from returns review left behind by users of your organisation will give Keep Space the right to dispose of the SKUs and apply cleaning fees to your organisation’s invoice period.

 

3. Pick and Packing

3.1 Order Processing and Cut-Off Time

3.1.1 Keep Space processes all Outbound Orders received in the Keep Space Portal by 12 p.m. local Fulfilment Centre time, known as the Cut-Off time, on the same business day, subject to carrier pull times and up to 120% of the Outbound Forecast unit volume.

3.1.2 Orders received within the business day timeframe are subject to two qualifying service requirements: timing and capacity.

3.1.2.1 Keep Space Fulfilment Centres have a daily business timeframe, with the Cut-Off time at 12 p.m. in that Fulfilment centre’s time zone. The only reason that it would not be dispatched is under 3.1.2.2

3.1.2.2 Keep Space has a daily capacity limit for order fulfilment, which depends on factors such as seasonal variations and your organisation’s forecasts. Capacity is allocated based on the priority of your organisation’s arrival at the fulfilment centre and availability within the Cut-Off time.

3.1.2.3 Keep Space may delay order fulfilment if conditions in 3.1.2.1 and 3.1.2.2 are not met to ensure the health and well-being of its operational team. Keep Space will make reasonable efforts to process the orders on the same business day. If it cannot do so, it will process the order by the close of business on the next business day.

3.1.4 If an order is received after the Cut-Off Time and is identified by your organisation as Urgent, your organisation can request an Urgent Order. Keep Space has the final decision to process or not, depending on the volume and time of the business day. If processed, your organisation will incur an Urgent Order fee in the next invoicing period.

3.1.5 If Keep Space does not have enough inventory to fulfil an order on the day received, your organisation will be notified through the Portal with a “No Stock” status. Your organisation is responsible for managing backorders and allocation decisions.

 

3.2 Packing Material

3.2.1 Keep Space provides a stock range of packing materials for handling orders. The cost of materials is included in handling pricing and cannot be negotiated.

3.2.2 Your organisation has the option to use its own packing materials, which will be treated as an additional SKU in your fulfilment order, incurring an additional picking price.

 

3.3 Prepping and Assembly

3.3.1 Keep Space supports your organisation’s preparation and assembly needs, especially for products requiring assembly or specific sequencing of multiple SKUs. Clear and concise instructions from your organisation are required for entry into the Keep Space portal.

3.3.1 If discrepancies or challenges arise in the instructions, Keep Space will work with your organisation to ensure clarity and adherence to your instructions.

3.3.3 All assembly processing incurs a fee, which will be invoiced in your organisation’s following invoice period.

 

3.4 Public Holidays

3.4.1 Keep Space Fulfilment centres located within cities where national public holidays occur will be closed on those days.

Shipping

1. Outbound Orders | 2. Domestic | 3. International | 4. Forecasts

1. Outbounds

1.1 Outbound Orders on your behalf

1.1.1 Organisations allow Keep Space to ship their orders on their behalf and utilise Keep Space shipping partnerships to send their goods to their customers’ addresses.

1.1.2 Rates and service quotations are estimates based on information provided by your organisation. Final rates and services may vary based on the shipment actually tendered. Charges will be assessed based on the rates effective on the day of shipment processing. Keep Space may retroactively assess or adjust fees and restrict certain aspects of your organisation’s account if errors are discovered beyond Keep Space’s control.

1.1.3 Additional fee charges may include levies, customs, taxes, failed deliveries, returns, labour waiting times, re-consignment, and re-directions. Keep Space reserves the right to invoice additional fees into your organisation’s next invoice period, along with administrative fees for address corrections and carrier adjustments billed to Keep Space by transportation carriers and agencies.

 

2. Domestic Outbounds

2.2 Domestic Outbounds of Parcels and Pallets

2.2.1 Cubic and Dead Weight: The costs to transport goods are dependent upon carrier space and weight limitations and carrier dimensional weight policies. Thus, bulky shipments requiring considerable space are often charged a cubic weight.

Keep Space utilises a range of carriers that have shipments tendered to us and is charged according to the actual weight or the cubic weight, whichever is greater. Cubic weight is computed by taking the cube of the exterior dimensions of the shipping carton (Length x Width X Height) / Dim Factor. Different carriers and services use different dim factors and may change these from time to time. Keep Space will compute the cubic weight for each carton based on the carrier terms and conditions in place at the time the order is quoted for processing. Actual Weight is calculated by taking the product weights + carton tare weight (this is the empty container weight) + void fill weight. Billable weight is the greater of the Cubic weight or Actual weight and rounded UP to the next billable weight break (typically the next gram or kg) for that carrier and service.

2.2.2 An Organisation’s shipment that is destined for, a remote location or a location distant from a commercial centre may be assessed to additional charges and may incur additional transit day(s). Known surcharges like fuel surcharges and delivery area surcharges will typically be included at the time of shipment. Some surcharges and fees are not known until after delivery has been made, (e.g. wait time, additional delivery attempts, redirect fees, address correction fees). you are responsible for any invoiced surcharge or fee for shipments from your Organisation’s account. Keep Space may invoice these charges in arrears without additional notice into the next invoice period

2.2.3 Accurate weight and dimension information must be entered when adding new SKUs to the Keep Space platform. Incorrect information may lead to overpayment or underestimation of shipping fees. Your Organisation’s account will back-invoice the difference in the case of underestimation. However, Keep Space is not responsible for refunds due to overpayment resulting from erroneous information. If your organisation discovers any inaccuracies, please inform Keep Space promptly. All shipping costs quoted are estimates until billed by the shipping carriers. Keep Space reserves the right to edit dimensions and weight at its discretion to reflect actual packing requirements.

2.2.4 Your organisation is responsible for the accuracy and deliverability of order shipping addresses. Keep Space may verify some shipping addresses, but it is not a substitute for your organisation’s address diligence. If an estimate is based on an inaccurate or incomplete address, your organisation is responsible for address correction fees or any differences in shipping costs. Examples of discrepancies include, but are not limited to: incomplete addresses, inaccurate/incomplete commercial/residential addresses, and inaccurate/incomplete rural addresses.

 

3. International Outbounds

3.1 International Outbound of Parcels and Pallets

3.1.1 Keep Space offers international shipping on a “best efforts” basis and reserves the right to charge additional items, international documentation or per shipment handling fees for any international shipment

3.1.2 Keep Space will make best efforts to display these in shipping estimates. However, Keep Space cannot guarantee delivery due to uncertainties in cross-border shipping. Customs and customs agents can introduce delays, refuse processing, assess brokerage fees, and impose customs, taxes, or duties at their discretion. Even well-documented shipments can be returned without any reasons provided.

3.1.3 Keep Space encourages your organisation to consider last-mile delivery within the destination country to avoid unknowns and extra costs. Keep Space will not refund or guarantee lost or returned international shipments and recommends tracking and insurance for all international shipments.

3.1.4 Your organisation is responsible for fraud prevention related to international shipments. You are responsible for all fees related to international shipments charged by shipping carriers and recipient countries.

3.1.5 Carriers may return international shipments, incurring return shipping, brokerage, and returns processing carrier fees. These charges are invoiced in your organisation’s invoice periods, often without notice.

3.1.6 Keep Space will work with Organisations to circumvent International returns or abandon inventory at the Organisation’s request. This is done on a best-efforts basis, and Keep Space reserves the right to assess administration fees.

3.1.7 Customs, duties, and taxes on international shipments charged by carriers are the responsibility of your organisation and will be invoiced in your organisation’s next invoice period, regardless of whether they were included in the initial shipping estimate or whether the order was delivered.

3.1.8 Keep Space shipping Quotations as to shipping fees, rates of duty, international brokerage charges, freight charges, insurance premiums or other charges given during your use of Keep Space Services are for informational purposes only and are subject to change without notice and shall not under any circumstances be binding upon Keep Space.

3.3.8.1 Quotations accepted through Keep Space Services’ online interfaces and APIs are estimates based on the information you have supplied. An Organisation’s final shipping charge may differ based on carrier shipping prices, the actual characteristics of an Organisation’s dimensions and weight, the delivery address, and services requested during the normal course of delivery. Keep Space specifically disclaims liability for any shipping rate errors due to information you have supplied, such as dimensions and weights you have entered into our Portal. Keep Space disclaims liability for any shipping rate errors due to failures in communication with shipping carriers that are outside of Keep Space’s control.

 

4. Forecasts

4.1 Tier 3 and 4 Organisations

4.1.1 Tier 3 organisations must provide monthly volume forecasts at the beginning of the year to Keep Space. Timely and accurate forecasts are crucial for managing monthly volume movements.

4.1.2 Failure to provide monthly volume forecasts for Tier 3 organisations or above may lead to delays in orders due to lack of communication, which Keep Space will not be responsible for.

4.1.3 Keep Space will adjust fulfilment centre capacity based on your organisation’s monthly volume predictions.

4.1.4 If your organisation’s volume falls below the expected forecast, and Keep Space has hired additional staff to manage that volume, Keep Space reserves the right to pass on the additional labour charge to your organisation for that monthly period.

4.1.5 If your organisation’s volume exceeds the expected forecast, Keep Space will strive to process up to 120% of the forecasted capacity. Keep Space reserves the right to allow delays in shipments for the well-being of its staff due to this oversight and to prioritise the removal of all excess orders within the Keep Space portal through its fulfilment centres. Keep Space will not be responsible for excess orders that the Organisation failed to declare on its monthly forecast.

4.1.5.1 If Keep Space has willing staff, it may communicate with Tier 4 organisations and above about accessing overtime hours at an additional labour rate. If your organisation agrees to the price, Keep Space will invoice the additional labour charges in the following invoice period, provided there is capacity to maintain the standard.
