What To Know About Acctivate EDI 940 (Warehouse Shipping Order)

This article discusses information about Acctivate EDI 940.

Acctivate can export warehouse shipping orders to your 3PL (Third Party Logistics) provider via EDI.  This transaction is commonly referred to as the EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Order transaction.  The EDI 940 reflects the Acctivate Sales Order detail lines for a given warehouse.  An individual Customer Sales Order may have some items that are shipped by the 3PL and others that are shipped direct from inventory at your warehouse.  For example, your primary inventory may be stocked and shipped by the 3PL provider, but orders for accessories may be shipped directly from your office.

Customer orders are processed and shipped by the 3PL provider.  The 3PL will then send an EDI Warehouse Shipping Advice transaction including details of the shipment.
