Do It Best EDI Compliance

Do It Best was founded in 1945 originally as hardware Wholesalers Inc. but has since changed to Do It Best. The company has around 3,800 stores across the United States and in 53 countries.

Do It Best has about 67,000 total products to offer including hardware, lumber and building materials and is the 2nd largest co-op in their industry with sales of 2.67 billion.

EDI documents are transmitted over a VAN (Value Added Network). Below are the EDI document types and labels that are required by Do It Best and which have been fully verified by CovalentWorks for accurate compliance with their EDI requirements.

The ASN (Advance Shipping Notice) contains detailed information about the products that are being sent to Do It Best and as well as transportation information. For example, the SCAC code, carrier name, Bill of Lading, carrier reference, shipped date, and estimated delivery date will be included in addition to data that comes from the purchase order.

Do It Best uses the SOI format for ASN’s. SOI stands for Shipment, Order, and Pack (carton). SOI is also known as “summary ASN” and does not have as much carton detail information as some other ASN structures.
