When will my order ship?
Our website provides the lead time for each item to allow our customers time to plan and prepare accordingly. Lead times are notated in business days. Same day shipping items ordered after 2:00 pm EST may not ship until the next business day.
Where will my orders ship from?
Global Industrial has six North American distribution centers located in New Jersey, Georgia, Wisconsin, Nevada, Toronto, and Calgary. In addition, we ship from various third party partners throughout North America.
How can I get my order sooner?
In some cases, we can obtain a rush from a third party partner. Lead times on made to order and custom items cannot be expedited. Lead time will be impacted on large quantity orders.
Delivery service may be expedited for an additional fee(s). Please note, choosing expedited delivery service only shortens the amount of time spent in transit once shipped. Normal product lead times still apply.
What is the difference between lead time and transit time?
Lead time is calculated from when the order is placed until the items depart the warehouse.
Transit time is the amount of time an order spends en route from the warehouse to the final destination.
When planning for delivery, lead times and transit times must both be considered; they are independent of one another. We do not ship on weekends or holidays. Additionally, transit time does not include holidays or weekends.
How do I track my order?
Tracking information can be found on the shipping confirmation email or by visiting MY ACCOUNT.

UPS DIM Weight
For packages shipping UPS, a "dimensional weight" is calculated. UPS will calculate shipping charges based on the dimensional weight or actual package weight, whichever is heavier.
Global Industrial will assist customer in filing a claim with the carrier on all prepaid shipments, provided the following guidelines are met:
- Global Industrial must be notified within 5 business days of receipt, beginning the day of delivery. Digital pictures should be submitted at the time damage is reported. Reporting damage/loss after this time will void the claim.
- Receiver should count and thoroughly inspect all items for damage before accepting and signing for the delivery. Shortages must be noted on the delivery receipt.
- Products that have visible damage must be shown to the driver immediately. The carton for that item should be opened and the contents inspected by both the receiver and driver. All details of the damage should be noted on the delivery receipt prior to signing for the shipment.
- In addition, all packaging must be retained for possible inspection by the carrier. You have the right to accept partial shipments and refuse the remaining damaged units. Do not accept shipments of severely damaged items. Global follows the National Motor Freight Classification laws that are regulated by the Federal Government in cases of damage or loss by the carrier.
Important: A clear receipt for a shipment in which there is damaged merchandise or a shortage relieves the carrier of further responsibility.
