Advance Shipping Notification with EDI – Outbound

  • Documents processing with electronic data interchange (EDI) encompass an exchange of business documents between business partners over EDI, which is typical for issuing delivery documents.
  • A delivery notification is automatically created using the EDI file from the wholesale distributor with EDI for the customer.
  • When an outbound ASN is generated for a delivery, the outbound EDI file (invoice) is generated automatically and refers to the sales order that was created.

ASN with EDI – Inbound

  • Document processing with EDI encompass an exchange of business documents between business partners over EDI, which is typical for issuing delivery documents.
  • A delivery notification is automatically created using the EDI file from a supplier to create a delivery notification automatically with EDI for the wholesale distributor.

Yard Management

  • Extend warehouse management beyond the physical walls of the warehouse, enabling management and control from the time that goods are scheduled to arrive at the warehouse
  • Demonstrates how to track the movement of trailers
  • Provide inventory visibility with the receiving and shipping yards
  • The yard can also be virtual
  • Only trucks and vehicles are visible for planning

Cross Docking

  • Support both opportunistic and planned cross-docking content, with and without handling units.
  • Enables efficient handling of materials and minimize unnecessary handling to reduce cycle times, inventory, and handling costs.
  • Enables two-step cross-docking, where goods to be cross-docked are first moved from the goods receipt area to a cross-docking storage type.Goods are subsequently moved to the goods issue area upon release of the outbound document.
  • With opportunistic cross-docking, the system generates a cross- docking decision during creation of transport orders (after the arrival of the incoming stock or release of the outgoing document).

Transportation Management

Process steps

1.     Company issues a transportation-service purchase order that specifies an expense limit

2.     Customer places an order, and the relative deliveries are generated

3.     Route is determined, and, based upon the generated deliveries, a shipment document is generated

4.     For new order placement by the Customer, you can combine both orders into a single delivery

5.     Shipment execution is monitored by entering the finished time and setting the relative status.

6.     After the transportation process is finished, a shipment-cost document is generated based upon the shipment document

7.     The shipment cost is posted to the appropriate general ledger accounts.
