Suppliers (Phase II)

Dear Valued Supplier,

Dow AgroSciences will be initiating a technical upgrade to its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. This will require a shipping holiday to be put in place. We are writing to you so you can prepare as needed. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and support during this process.

You will need the following important information as you prepare your system and records over the coming weeks.

  • Dow will initiate a receiving holiday for a short period of time. During this timeframe Dow systems will not be available to perform the usual receiving operations. Your Purchasing representative will contact you to schedule receipts accordingly during this period if necessary.
    • Receiving Holiday: Saturday, July 29, 2017 through Wednesday, August 2, 2017 (shipment receipts will not be possible during this period)
    • It is important to share this information with others in your organization as appropriate
  • Obtain the new purchase order number from our website if there are outstanding purchase orders for your company.

Next Steps

We will send you additional communications as applicable and your Dow representative will work with you as needed to ensure you are prepared. Feel free to visit the website for regularly updated questions and answers regarding the project. The website will be maintained regularly as additional details become available.

We appreciate your effort to work with us ahead of time to ensure minimal impact to you and your business. If you have any questions or require additional information, please don’t hesitate to call your current Dow contact.
