HSN EDI Requirements

The ASN (Advance Shipping Notice) will contain comprehensive information about the packing of the products that are being sent to HSN and as well as transportation information. For example, the carrier reference number, seller invoice number, shipped date, and amount to be billed will be included in addition to data that comes from the purchase order.

HSN uses the SI format for ASN’s. SI stands for Shipment and item. This packing structure will result in an ASN document that has one shipping level, which contains within it one item level for each unique item (distinct part number) contained within the shipment. The quantities specified for each of the items will be the total quantity of that item in the delivery.
