Mill Direct FAQs

How do I ship goods directly from the mill?
You would select the “Mill Direct – NO COD’s” warehouse from the list of available warehouses. Once you select the appropriate warehouse you would fill in your quantities as you would with any normal item.

How would I pay for a mill direct order?
You can pay for a mill direct order with a credit card or your net term account. Unfortunately at this time you cannot pay for a mill direct order with a COD.

When can I expect my order?
Since the order will ship directly from the mill warehouse/factory the time and transit may vary. Please see the mill guidelines section for specific mill locations.

Is the inventory accurate? Some items are coming up as quanitity "999"  or "500" and others have a number?
The maximum amount of inventory able to be shown for mill direct items is quantity 999. Currently TSC Apparel is not able to show real time inventory from all of its mills. Quantities listed from our other mill partners may not necessarily reflect available stock at the mill warehouse.

Can I order from more than one mill at a time?
