Bed Bath & Beyond EDI Requirements

Bed Bath and Beyond requires several kinds of labels when suppliers ship orders. Some of these labels types are:

Shipping 1 SKU per carton

Label for shipping to Consolidator or Pool Network

SOPI ASN type and shipping 1 SKU per carton

Pick and pack (multiple SKU) per carton

Shipping a single SKU per carton with a special region label

Shipping multiple SKU’s per carton with a special region label

The ASN (Advance Shipping notice) will have comprehensive information about the items that are being shipped, how the items are packed, and how they are being transported. For example, the Numeric Gross Weight, SCAC code, Bill of Lading, Shipped date, and Pack Quantity will be included as well as information that comes straight from the purchase order.

Bed Bath and Beyond uses the SOPI and SOIP format for ASN’s.  SOPI is mainly used for shipments with more than one item type and SOIP is used for shipments that have only one item type.

An SOPI (Shipment, Order, Pack (carton) and Item) ASN is also known as “Pick and Pack” because more than one type of item can be picked from the supplier’s shelves and packed into the same carton.

SOIP (Shipment, Order, Item and Pack) is commonly called “Standard Pack” because it allows for only one product type to be packed into any one container.  

Both parcel and LTL carriers are used for transportation of goods. Bed Bath and Beyond has suppliers send shipments directly to stores as well as through their logistics network. The network includes cross docking at warehouses and subsequent pool distribution of products to multiple stores within a geographic area.
