Zone Shipment Scheduler

Hardiness zones divide the USA into 11 areas based on the average annual minimum temperature. Products are assigned to a Zone Schedule by the client based on how well they will survive within given ship-to climates (zones) upon certain date ranges within a year. This gives customers the ability to select when a product is able to be shipped providing the best survival of a plant.

<---- add this line before the Product Name - Part # - Qty header section ---->
<tr><td colspan="6">{zone_shipping}</td></tr>

<---- add this section after the Part # section or Send To section (mst) ---->

<td width="10%" nowrap="nowrap">
<b>Ship Date</b>
