Bloomingdale's EDI Requirements


Bloomingdale’s suppliers use several different labels when filling an order.  These labels include:

Carton label when Bloomingdales does NOT send Product Group Description in the PO

Carton label when Bloomingdales sends Product Group Description in the PO

Label for furniture shipment

The ASN (Advance Shipping Notice) contains extensive information about the products that are being sent to Bloomingdales, how the items have been packed for shipment, and transportation information. For example, the weight in pounds, carrier name, Bill of Lading number, shipped date, and scheduled delivery date will be included in addition to data that comes from the purchase order.

Bloomingdale's uses a type of 856 Advance Ship Notice which is an SOPI format. SOPI stands for Shipment, Order, Pack (carton) and Item. SOPI is also known as “Pick and Pack” because more than one type of item can be filled in the same carton.

Bloomingdale's uses a special type of SOPI format for dropship ASNs.
