At Winco, we believe Forming Metals and Relationships are of utmost importance. This Winco Program Agreement is used in conjunction with the Quote and other written and confirmed documents to both explain program expectations and establish the rights and obligations of both parties: Winco and Customer. Our goal is to get started with clarity, a meeting of the minds, and build a strong foundation to help each other be successful.
Lead Time: The notice Winco needs to have parts ready to ship. Lead Time will vary by the inventory program selected.
Lead Time to Manufacture: This is the amount of time it takes Winco to manufacture the part and have it on our dock ready to ship. When included with your quote, it is generally based on 2500 parts unless otherwise indicated. As Winco strives to provide the best possible Lead Time to our Customer and the Lead Time to Manufacture will fluctuate (potential causes include: order size, value-added outside services, material procurements slow-downs, requote needed, and holidays), Customer should flex this time up in their system to allow for these contingencies (Winco recommends a minimum of 3-5 days). The actual, then current, Lead Time to Manufacture will be confirmed upon request or during the confirmation of your PO.
Minimum Invoice Amount: Invoices for any shipment, regardless of program are subject to a $250 minimum invoice amount to cover additional expenses for the shipping and handling time required.
Quote: The document identifying the piece price, quantity, and all other supporting requirements and program terms to be used in conjunction with this Winco Program Agreement to outline both Winco’s and the Customer’s Rights and Obligations.
Ready Date: The first Ship Date a Customer may use on a PO for a part being manufactured. It is an agreed upon date on or after the Lead Time to Manufacture the part.
ROP: The Re-Order Point, ROP, is used by Winco and Customer to establish the trigger for generating another manufacturing run. It must be established at a point high enough to cover all potential shipments during the Lead Time to Manufacture the Customer part.
ROQ: The Re-Order Quantity, ROQ, is used by Winco and Customer to establish the maximum pieces to build when inventory falls below the ROP.
Sales Order Confirmation: The confirmation Winco sends after Customer PO has been validated and entered in Winco’s ERP.
Ship Date: The date Winco will have Customer part ready to ship from our dock. As ship-to’s vary, as well as transportation methods, Winco is not responsible for actual shipping performance.
