I'm shipping to Bed Bath & Beyond for the first time and the master PO (LY54581) has 291 different store #'s. Since these have to ship to the individual store
addresses I was wondering how I relfect that on the ASN. I've started to play around with the ASN and I'm seeing how I can add boxes per store number,
so that helps me understand a little, but where would I enter the 291 tracking #'s per carton?
Which also brings me to ask, on the ASN forms that I'm looking at, there is not a ship to address
section. There are 3 different ASN forms:

Advance Ship Notice
Advance Ship Notice (VDP Customers)
Advance Ship Notice Palletized (VDP Customers)

What is the difference between these? Which one do I need to use if I'm going to ship to all individual 291 store addresses.

On the Advance Ship Notice there is select a store section where I can enter the store number and name but no address. Please explain, do i not need a ship to address
on this ASN??

On the Advance Ship this is a ship to section that has Pool Name and Pool Location #? What goes in these fields? There is also a select a store section in the
Order tab.

Please help.

Hello,

There are a lot of options with the Bed Bath & Beyond ASN options.

To answer your first question, what is the difference between the ASN, the ASN (VDP Customers), and the ASN Palletized:
- the ASN is the usual form that suppliers use for their data transmission.  Bed Bath & Beyond is very clear if a supplier is a VDP customer, however, if you are not sure, I would recommend reaching out to them and confirming that you are not one.

Next, remember that you have to send one ASN per shipment, so if you are sending 291 shipments to different stores, you will need to create 291 ASNs.  One for each store.  Most suppliers put as many defaults into the form and then use the auto complete function to do this.  This will put a draft of an ASN for each store into your drafts folder and then you can go back to each one and finish packing the form.

If you have any questions on setting defaults, you can follow these directions here:

https://supportcenter.spscommerce.com/spscommerce/topics/video_advanced_features_defaults

1.       On WebForms, look on the left side of the page underneath the Inbox/Sent/Drafts folders.  Click on the option for Preferences.

2.       Click on the Defaults tab, choose your trading partner, and click on the name of the form you want.

3.       The defaults window will open up.  On the left side, it lists all possible fields that you can set defaults for.  Expand a folder or click on an option and it will appear on the right side.  You can then type in or select the option you want the default to be set at.  You can do this for as many fields as you want.

4.       Once you are done making changes, put a checkmark in “activate defaults” at the bottom of the page.  Then click Save.  The next time you open this form, the defaults should source in.



In terms of the ship to address, we have that all tabled here at SPS so we put that in for you when you put the store number in.  It's just one less step you will have to do.

Those are the general questions I can answer without seeing your specific information.  If you have further questions, or questions more specific to your ASNs, please give us a call at customer support.  1-888-739-3232 option 1, then option 1 again.

Thank you,
Katrina

Hello,

For the SCAC codes, FedEx has quite a few and there are two for FedEx freight.  I would suggest asking your carrier which code to use to ensure you are using the correct one.  I have included the options below:

Federal Express FEDX

the characters may be numbers or uppercase and lowercase
letters
Federal Express
Corp
FDE
Reference number is 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 22, 32 or 34 numbers
long with no letters
FedEx Ground FDEG
Reference number is 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 22, 32 or 34 numbers
long with no letters
FedEx Ground
FDEC
FDEB
Reference number is 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, or 22 characters long and
the characters may be numbers or uppercase and lowercase
letters

the characters may be numbers or uppercase and lowercase
letters
Federal Gateway

Storage
FLLV Reference number is 6 numbers long with no letters
FedEx Freight
FXFE
FXFW
Reference number is 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, or 22 characters long and
the characters may be numbers or uppercase and lowercase
letters or 7 numbers long with no letters
FedEx National FXNL
Reference number is 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, or 22 characters long and
the characters may be numbers or uppercase and lowercase
letters
FedEx SmartPost FXSP Reference number is 20 numbers long with no letters

For the Tracking number:
If you have a choice between the BOL and PRO # fields and you only have to enter one, it is closest to the PRO # in what is is communicating.  I would enter it in there.  If you find that once you enter that number in other fields become conditionally mandatory, you may need the BOL number from the carrier at that point.

Sometimes vendors will partially create the ASN, save it in drafts, print out the labels, ship the goods, then go back once they have the shipping information from the carrier and finish the ASN and send it at that point.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Katrina
