MDS Enhancement - ASN (Advanced Shipping Notices)

MDS Enhancement - ASN (Advanced Shipping Notices)

Clifton, NJ. The Systems House, Inc.

An advance ship notice or advance shipping notice (ASN) is a notification of pending deliveries, similar to a packing list. It is usually sent in an electronic format and is a common EDI document. In the EDI X12 system, it is known as the EDI 856 document. The ASN can be used to list the contents of a shipment of goods as well as additional information relating to the shipment, such as order information, product description, physical characteristics, type of packaging, markings, carrier information, and configuration of goods within the transportation equipment. 

Key Benefits: 
•  Capture package level detail using Pack Line Scanning. 
•  Increase shipping accuracy by scanning items and comparing them to the sales order or picking document.
