Shipping Procedures

All attempts are made for orders to be processed & dispatched within 24-48 hours of receipt of payment, however this is not always guaranteed.

Orders will be delivered to the “Shipping Address” as it appears on the Tax Invoice.

Please note that courier companies will not call prior to delivery to confirm delivery times for your order. Upon delivery to the nominated address, the goods must be signed for. The person who signs for the delivery is considered to be authorised to receive the goods.

In the event a signature cannot be obtained, the courier will be authorised to leave the goods at the premises. The same applies when the customer instructs Alpha Food Packaging to leave the goods at their premises without a signature. This is known as an “Authority To Leave - ATL”. Alpha Food Packaging and the Courier Company shall not be held liable for goods delivered under these circumstances.

While every effort is made to deliver goods within the customer's business operating hours, this is not always possible as couriers deliver between the hours of 8:30am - 5pm (Monday to Friday). If you require your order to be strictly delivered before a certain time, additional charges do apply. Please contact us on 1300 799 201 before your consignment is dispatched from our warehouse to organise this.
