Harmon Stores EDI Requirements
Suppliers use several label types when a purchase order is fulfilled. They include:
Carton Label with Single SKU
Carton Label with Mixed SKU
The ASN (Advance Shipping notice) will have extensive information about the items that are being shipped and how they are being transported. For example, the numeric weight, SCAC code, Bill of Lading, shipped date, and numeric quantity per carton will be included as well as information directly from the purchase order.
Harmon Stores 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. A couple examples of these ASN types are:
Single SKU packing
Multiple SKUs per carton / pick and pack
