Roundy's EDI Requirements

Roundy’s suppliers use several label types when a purchase order is fulfilled. They include:

  • Carton Only Mixed
  • Carton Only Single SKU
  • Pallet Only Mixed
  • Pallet Only Single 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 carrier’s SCAC code, equipment number, Bill of Lading, shipped date, current schedule delivery date, product ID, quantity shipped, and shelf life expiration will be included as well as information directly from the purchase order.

Roundy’s uses the SOTPI format for ASN’s. SOTPI stands for Shipment, Order, Tare (pallet), Pack (carton) and Item). The SOTPI packing structure is like the SOPI packing structure, except that the cartons are loaded onto one or more pallets/slips.
