Toys R Us 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 numeric gross weight, volume, SCAC code, government Bill of Lading, shipped date, estimated delivery date, carton quantity and carrier assigned code will be included as well as information directly from the purchase order.

Toys “R” Us uses the SOIP for ASN’s.

SOIP (Shipment, Order, Item and Pack) is commonly called “Standard Pack” because it allows for only one product type to be packed into any one container. Toys “R” Us uses two types of SOIP ASN’s. The two types are:

  • Single SKU per Carton - For Shipping to DC with Standard Pack
  • Single / mixed SKU packing - For DC or Store Shipments; Pick & Pack

Both parcel and LTL carriers are used for transportation of goods. Toys “R” Us has suppliers send shipments directly to stores as well as through their logistics network. The network includes cross docking at warehouses and subsequent pool distribution of products to multiple stores within a geographic area.  


Toys “R” Us requires several label types when a purchase order is filled by a supplier. They include:


SOPI BL Pick & Pack Multi Items

SOPI BL Pick & Pack Single Item

SOPI BM Pick & Pack Multi Items
