THIRD PARTY LOGISTICS –

3PL EDI

The term “3PL” indicates that your client uses a 3rd party for warehousing and shipping needs. The following EDI documents are common:

• 940 – Warehouse Shipping Order • 945 – Warehouse Shipping Advice • 856 – Advance Ship Notice (ASN) • UCC / GS1-128 Barcode Labels

In this simplified scenario, there are only two steps:

1. An EDI 940 (Warehouse Ship Order) is sent from the client to their trading partner and 3PL.

GS1-128

LABELS

In today’s business environment, GS1-128 (formerly known as UCC-128) labels have become a necessary part of the criteria for large format retailers in automating the supply chain with their suppliers. GS1-128 labels are an outer label affixed to each carton and/or pallet and provide information about a particular shipment. This label will alert the trading partner about shipment information such as who the vendor / supplier is, carton content, store ship to location, etc., and is a mix of both human readable as well as scan able information.
