EDI 940

EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Schedule

Typically used by sellers and suppliers as a warehouse shipping order, the EDI 940 is sent to third-party logistics providers as a formal request of shipment of goods. Therefore, an EDI 940 is essential for suppliers who use a third-party warehouse to store goods. 

The EDI 940 has information regarding the shipment request and order, including:

  • Purchase Order Numbers
  • Shipping Address
  • Receiver Contact Information
  • Order Details, product, quantity, date
  • Shipping Instructions
  • Special Equipment Requirements

Sellers, manufacturers, and suppliers need to communicate this information with timeliness and exact precision. Using the EDI 940 document eliminates human errors and improves timeliness. The document lays out all of the information that 3PL partners need to fulfill the order exactly.

Data for the EDI 940 can be pulled from data integration through an in-house EDI system or entered manually into an EDI standard document.

Once the data is entered into the EDI translator, the conversion process will begin into an EDI document. The resulting document is error-free and will be transmitted promptly to the third-party, making it perfect for retailers, manufacturers, and other types of sellers.

The EDI 940 is critical for having the correct number of and type of goods delivered by a third party. At Effective Data, our EDI solutions provide complete accuracy and knowledge of the EDI transmission process.

EDI 940 transactions are most commonly sent directly to the receiver where the receiver of the EDI 940 decodes the EDI into a document that the recipient can use. The second way of sending the EDI 940 is to send it via a secure dial-up connection to a Value-Added Network (VAN) and then is routed to the recipient.
