Kohl's EDI Requirements

 

Suppliers use several label types when purchase orders are filled. Example types include:

  • BULK for SOPI ASN type
  • BULK SOIP ASN type with a single SKU
  • Landed Bulk
  • Landed Prepack
  • Pack by Store
  • Prepack one Style for packing 1 assorted item per carton
  • Prepack Multi Style Color for packing multi-assorted item with different style and color per carton

The ASN (Advance Shipping Notice) will contain comprehensive information about the packing of the products that are being sent to Kohl’s and as well as transportation information. For example, the numeric gross weight, SCAC code, Bill of Lading, your email address, date shipped, and ship to ID will be included in addition to data that comes from the purchase order.

Kohl’s 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.

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