Please advise if an ASN is required on Drop Ship for TSC. Also, if yes, then, please explain the new choices of ASN-SOPI,SOTPI,SOTI,SOIP. Not sure which one to use for a drop ship and there is NO selection for Drop Ship Invoice.
In regards to your question, yes, the ASN is required. The ASN options you are seeing differ in terms of information you provide, such as, how you pack your cartons/pallets. Below I will highlight the main differences.
1. SOPI: Pack information is added and then item information is included to describe which items are in each pack (carton). This is the standard ASN and the one you will most likely want to use. 2. SOTPI: Similar to the option above, but a tare level is added before the pack information. So in this case you have a pallet but you are still communicating information as in which items are in each carton. 3. SOTI: In this ASN you have a pallet with individual items on it. You are not designating how items are packed in boxes. 4. SOIP: In this example you are giving the item information first and then describing the packing structure.
For the invoice you will want to use the invoice option off of the PO.
If you have additional questions, I would recommend reaching out to our support team as they can discuss in depth your individual situation. Our support team can be reached at 888-739-3232 option 1,1.
Thank you, this helps with a regular PO, but not with a Drop Ship. I cannot process a Drop Ship off SPS, it is looking for a PO in the SPS system and I do not have one. Please advise how to process Drop Shipments ASN/Invoices through EDI. Thank you.
