EDI solutions for integrating with ERPs. What sold me on MegaXML was the fact that TPG can customize the software to meet our needs. Most EDI software packages are not fully customizable. MegaXML eliminated need for an in-house EDI hardware and software cost.

EDI 856 Ship Notice/Manifest

The EDI 856 transaction is more commonly called the Advance Ship Notice or ASN. Supplier sends ASN to inform buyer that shipment is on the way so that buyer can make arrangement to receive merchandize. ASN normally includes item number(s), quantity being shipped, packing information, carrier information, date of arrival etc. Shipping document (ASN) must arrive prior to merchandise can be received. Most buyers wouldn’t be able to receive merchandise without prior ASN document. According to prior agreement, buyer may receive merchandize without ASN with a certain chargeback amount for late receipt of ASN document.

Supplier’s backend system then reviews items being ordered and price. Additionally, supplier also reviews inventory to make sure requested quantities of items are available. Matching all the required information suppliers then fulfils the order and sends a shipping document 856 informing shipped items. After supplier receives the 997 Functional Acknowledgement for the shipment document from the buyer; the supplier proceeds to send an 810 Invoice document.

  1. Shipment Level information such as tracking numbers and carrier information
  2. Order level information such as purchase order numbers
  3. Item level information including items and quantities
  4. Packing level information such as barcodes printed on each carton
