Petco EDI Requirements
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, volume, bill to name, ship from ID, and requested for shipment date will be included as well as information directly from the purchase order.
Petco uses the SOPI format for ASN’s. 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.
Petco has a Transportation Management System (TMS) for shipments to distribution centers. Supplier pickups are arranged through the TMS. The system combines separate orders with identical shipping dates and destinations into a larger, lower-cost, and nonstop route order.
