There are two ways you can get your brochures to the Visitor Welcome Center(s):
- You can have your brochures automatically delivered to the Welcome Centers from the PMAP Central Warehouse (This is the "Central Warehouse" option).
- You can manage deliveries yourself and ship brochures directly to the Welcome Centers from your location. (This is the "Direct Delivery" option). There is no charge for this option.
Central Warehouse option:
With the launch of PMAP, you now have an option to distribute your brochures via the PMAP Central Warehouse. The Central Warehouse is an option; it is not a required distribution methodology. As in years past, if you so choose, you can us the Direct Delivery option and assume responsibility to package, ship and manage brochure resupply requests from the Welcome Centers. With the Central Warehouse option, you ship your brochures to one address (the warehouse). Once received at the Warehouse, your brochure deliveries to the Welcome Centers are managed through our distribution network.
If you opt to distribute your brochure via the Warehouse, you ship all of your brochures to one address. You no longer have to ship to multiple Welcome Centers. You can also make just one or two shipments a year, for example when your brochures come off the press or you have an up-date. We will warehouse and distribute your brochures to the Welcome Centers; the Welcome Center staff orders your brochure through our online ordering site. One a brochure is ordered, the brochure is pulled, packaged, and delivered/shipped to the Welcome Center. You receive a monthly inventory report showing quantity on hand at the Central Warehouse. When your warehouse inventory gets low, we notify you that additional inventory is needed.
Self Distribution/Direct Delivery option:
You might choose to ship your brochures to each Welcome Center yourself. We call this option "Direct Delivery". This is the delivery option that had been used in years past, prior to the launch of PMAP in 2011.
If you choose the Direct Delivery option, you are responsible for sending sufficient brochures to all of the Welcome Centers that are distributing your brochures. With the Direct Delivery option, the staff at each Welcome Center distributing your brochure will contact you throughout the year whenever additional brochures are needed at that Welcome Center.
*I understand that I will be responsible for maintaining proper inventory at each Welcome Center throughout the year and that each Welcome Center will contact me directly when additional inventory is needed.
