Autozone EDI Requirements

The ASN (Advance Shipping Notice) will contain comprehensive information about the packing of the products that are being sent to AutoZone and as well as transportation information. For example, the shipped date, shipped time, scheduled delivery date, measurement value, BOL number, PRO number, and tracking number will be included in addition to data that comes from the purchase order.

AutoZone uses the SOI format for ASN’s. SOI stands for Shipment, Order, and Item. SOI is also known as “summary ASN” and does not have as much carton detail information as some other ASN structures.

AutoZone uses a cross docking system that is a key component of their supply chain network. Cross docking is a logistics system in which products from a supplier are routed to stores through a distribution center. Trucks from suppliers dock on one side of the distribution center and trucks going out to the stores dock on the other side. Conveyer belts in the distribution center move product from the incoming docks to the outgoing docks by automatically scanning the GS1-128 bar code label. Product is not usually stored at the distribution center.
