Freight Instructions

We’ve partnered with MIQ Logistics (MIQL), in Overland Park, Kan., to act as our freight transportation manager for all freight shipments from your facility where Duke Energy is responsible for freight charges. 

As our third-party logistics provider, MIQL is responsible for carrier selection and all communications with carriers on behalf of Duke Energy. They have entered into agreements with couriers, carriers (such as Less Than Truckload and Truckload) and air-freight providers on behalf of Duke Energy.

For small parcel shipments, MIQL will provide the proper UPS or FedEx account numbers to be used.

For non-expedited shipments, please contact MIQL 48 hours prior to the ship date so shipping consolidation opportunities can be evaluated.

Shipments not tendered as per the PO instructions will result in a credit adjustment applied against the supplier’s invoice for the excess freight cost incurred.

The expectation is that the supplier (or sub-supplier) provide the following information to MIQL:

  • Duke Energy purchase order number, including release number
  • Correct class of each item, proper shipping name, dimensions and weight of the material being shipped
  • Duke Energy destination site contact information
  • Upon receipt of the above information, MIQL will provide a completed Bill of Lading (BOL) to be used by the supplier (or sub-supplier) for all Duke Energy shipments

As stated on each purchase order, to schedule transportation of freight where Duke Energy is responsible for the freight charges, contact MIQ Logistics at 866.853.9162
