Ocean State Job Lot 856

Several questions posed to the SPS Commerce team about the Ocean State Job Lot 856 ASN specifications are related to the item information and how to properly pack items. The below 3 segments have the most common errors:

LIN
SN1
PO4

A common issue occurs when suppliers have the PO4 segment mapped beyond the PO401. Please access the vendor portal for the most up to date Ocean State Job Lot 856 Specifications.

Another common issue is related to HOW to pack their items via EDI to convey tracking/package information properly. Below is an example of a correctly packed item:

HL*3*2*P
MAN*GM*00007535190314481418
HL*4*3*I
LIN**SK*12724*VN*56789
SN1**1*CA
PO4*12
PID*F*08*** PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What the above information is conveying:

There is one case of 12 items for SKU 12724.

LIN Segment = Item Identification; SKU/UPC/Vendor Part Number
SN1*not mapped*Number of Units Shipped*UOM
PO4*Number of Inner/Eaches in SN102

Note that if a particular SKU has a different CasePack (PO401), Ocean State requests that you send that sku again with the unique casepack noted. Therefore, there is a potential for you to repeat the LIN segment with the same SKU (LIN03*SK), but unique casepack (PO401). See example in PO4 segment.

If you are sending 3 cases of this product you'd pack as such:

HL*3*2*P
MAN*GM*00007535190314481418
HL*4*3*I
LIN**SK*12724*VN*56789
SN1**1*CA
PO4*12
PID*F*08***PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
HL*5*2*P
MAN*GM*00007535190314481425
HL*6*5*I
LIN**SK*12345*VN*56789
SN1**1*CA
PO4*12
PID*F*08***PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
HL*7*2*P
MAN*GM*00007535190314481432
HL*8*7*I
LIN**SK*12345*VN*56789
SN1**1*CA
