Institutional Commodities Services (ICS): Updates from ICS

As we begin to prepare for Lent in a few weeks, ICS wants to alert you to important dates for placing and modifying your palm for this holy season. It is essential that you place your orders early to avoid supply chain delays. The news is filled with disheartening delivery driver shortages. We have been working with our palm supplier, Palm Gardens, to ensure we have your high-quality fresh palm delivered in the same timely manner you have come to trust from ICS.

ICS will order more than 1 million palm strips this year. When you order your palm early, it will be included in our huge bulk order and will qualify ICS for a dedicated refrigerated truckload delivered directly from the supplier to UPS. UPS will then distribute palms to your parish during the week of April 3. PLEASE place your palm orders by our deadline of March 4. You can modify them until March 11.
Bottom line, please click here to order as soon as possible. We can save you money, time and headaches.
