Overview

IBM® is adding chargeable shipping and handling feature numbers to selected Power Systems™ equipment to align with industry practice. Power Systems equipment with individual machine type and model numbers will be affected. These include many, but not all, Power Systems servers, racks, Hardware Management Consoles (HMCs), and switches.

The shipping and handling (S&H) feature number is structured as a hardware feature number in the Power Systems ordering system. This hardware feature number is treated like a normal hardware feature number and can be eligible for standard hardware discounts as would be offered for any other hardware feature number. For simplicity, there is one priced S&H feature and thus one S&H price for each Power Systems machine type. This means one price even though the configuration being shipped may be large or small for that machine type. Likewise the price on the S&H feature is the same whether IBM has shipped the equipment a great distance at higher cost to IBM or a short distance. Note that expedited shipping remains a separate charge and as before is not implemented with a hardware feature number.

For extraordinary situations a no-charge S&H feature can be substituted for the chargeable S&H feature on selected equipment. An example of such a situation is a pre-existing special contract which legally precludes IBM from charging for shipping and handling.

All new proposals for the selected machine types which ship on or after July 10, 2012, should include an S&H feature.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM Power Systems is adding chargeable shipping and handling (S&H) features to selected equipment. For simplicity, individual feature numbers of the machine type/model do not have an S&H feature. For example, a new Power® 740 server with an EXP24S Disk Drawer (#5887) would have one S&H feature for the Power 740 (8205-E4C) but would not have a separate S&H feature for the feature #5887 I/O drawer.

For simplicity, MES orders do not have an S&H charge. For example, an incremental feature number PCI adapter, I/O drawer, or disk drive added to an existing Power System would not have an S&H feature number associated with the order. There is one exception. If the MES order is shipping an upgrade to a new machine type/model, an S&H feature number for the new machine type is added. An example of this would be a Power 520 upgrading to a Power 720 (8203-E4A to 8202-E4C).

For extraordinary situations a no-charge S&H feature can be substituted for the chargeable S&H feature on selected equipment. An example of such a situation is a pre-existing special contract which legally precludes IBM from charging for shipping and handling.

All new proposals for the selected machine types which ship on or after July 10, 2012, should include an S&H feature.

Note that an order which has more than one machine type/model can have more than one S&H charge. For example, a Power 740 (8205-E6C) shipped with a 42U Rack (7014-T42) and with an HMC (7042-CR6) would have three charges.

The following machine types have chargeable S&H features which should be used unless there are extraordinary circumstances. In the extraordinary case, the no-charge S&H feature #ESC0 can be substituted.
