Holiday Shipping Schedule

In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, we would like to inform you of our shipping schedule so that you can plan your orders accordingly. The weeks of Christmas and New Year have become the busiest for UPS and FedEx so we HIGHLY recommend placing your pharmaceutical orders early during the two holiday weeks to ensure you have product when needed for your patients.

UPS has advised the commitment time for Next Day Air packages delivered within the United States will be extended by 90 minutes on the following days: December 17-24, and December 31. Next Day Air Saver packages will be delivered by end of day. We recommend ordering by December 14 if there is something you have to have before the end of the month, to be safe.

Our regular business hours are 8:30am–7pm ET Monday – Thursday and 8:30am–5pm ET Friday. 

We will be closing at 3pm ET on Monday, December 24 and Monday, December 31
PLEASE NOTE: If your orders need to be invoiced in the October-December quarter to qualify for rebates, volume discounts, etc., the order MUST BE RECEIVED at Besse no later than 3pm ET on Monday, December 31.
