Neiman Marcus EDI Requirements

Neiman Marcus uses these label types when purchase orders are filled:

  • Label with an optional bill of lading
  • Label for shipping to a forwarding Location first

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 gross weight, SCAC code, carrier name, carrier Reference number, shipped date, schedule delivery date, ship to DC, and seller’s invoice number will be included as well as information directly from the purchase order.

Neiman Marcus uses the SOPI format for ASN’s. 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 packed into the same carton.

Neiman Marcus has a cross docking system which helps accelerate the delivery process. Cross docking is a logistics system where products from a supplier are transported to a store through a distribution center. Trucks from the suppliers dock on one side of the supply center and trucks going out to the stores dock on the other side of the supplier center. Conveyor belts move cartons from one dock to the other. 

Please refer to Neiman Marcus' general carton requirements for instructions and illustrations for proper general shipment packaging.
