Toyota EDI Requirements
The ASN (Advance Shipping Notice) contains detailed information about the products that are being sent to Toyota and as well as transportation information. For example, the gross weight, SCAC code, truck/trailer number and units shipped will be included in addition to data that comes from the purchase order.
Toyota uses the SOI format for ASN’s. SOI stands for Shipment, Order, and item. SOI is also known as “summary ASN” and does not have as much carton detail information as some other ASN structures.
