On LindeDirect, orders are placed for either pickup or delivery. This means that the inventory available to you differs depending on your location and order type.
For example, if you place a pickup order from our branch in Raleigh, NC, that inventory is different than if you place a delivery order to your home in Raleigh, NC. The delivery order is shipped from one of our regional distribution centers (DC) which has a completely different inventory allotment than the local branch.
Below is a guide to the different inventory statuses you may see listed on the site. If you still have questions, please reach out to our ecommerce customer reps at email@example.com or use the live chat function.
