Warehouse (North America)

EDI is an excellent tool to optimize warehousing business processes. Timely and accurate information can be exchanged without error leading to just-in-time utilization of capacity and movement of goods. Our team of analysts are ready to help you understand our specifications and facilitate testing to ultimately integrate our systems in a production environment.

The base set of transactions for a warehouse include the shipping 940/945, receiving 856/944, and inventory balance 846. 

Copack or special pack operations may also include production orders 850/860. Sites that store raw materials may also implement the 855. Additional transactions are provided to further integrate processes if able. Please discuss your scope with your assigned EDI analyst.
