Spartan Nash 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, SCAC code, carrier name, trailer number, carrier assigned package ID, date, shipment method of payment, location ID and description will be included as well as information directly from the purchase order.
SpartanNash uses the SOPI and SOTI 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.
The SOTI (Shipment, Order, Tare (Pallet) and Item) ASN format is identical to SOPI except that the carton information is replaced by pallet information.
Spartan Stores suppliers use several label types when a purchase order is fulfilled. They include:
- Carton Only
- Pallet Only
- Z Carton Only Label
