945 Warehouse Shipping Advice
Functional Group SW
X12M Supply Chain Subcommittee
This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Warehouse Shipping Advice Transaction Set (945) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used by the warehouse to advise the depositor that shipment was made. It is used to reconcile order quantities with shipment quantities.
How is an EDI 945 used?
For example, Seller A leverages a third-party logistics warehouse to fulfill their customer orders. After a customer buys their product, Seller A sends Warehouse B an EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Order to fulfill the order. After the order has been fulfilled, the Warehouse B will respond to Seller A with an EDI 945 Warehouse Shipping Advice to confirm the fulfillment.
