VWR Shipment Updates

Author: Alfredo Rangel

VWR is moving deliveries from their Batavia Distribution Center to a once per week schedule on Wednesdays.  This consolidation of orders will only apply to orders shipping from Batavia and can be determined by the “Shipping from: Chicago Distribution Center” on the order confirmation.

Orders that have origins from any of VWR's other distribution centers (Philadelphia, Atlanta, Visalia) will not be affected by this change.
