856 ASN Structure: Pick and Pack and Standard Carton Pack Mapping Notes
For Pick and Pack shipments, each packaging loop will report the serial number for one shipping container. The SKU contents of the shipping container are reported in one or more item loops which follow a packaging loop.
Example 1 is a carton with a UCC/EAN-128 carton ID (SSCC-18). Example 2 is a pallet with a UCC/EAN-128 pallet ID (SSCC-18).
Standard Carton Pack
When using the Standard Carton Pack structure, the sender may choose to create a single Pack level to report all container IDs for a shipped SKU. For example, to report a shipment of 4 cases of blue twin-size blankets, each case containing a quantity of 6, one packaging level is generated with 4 MAN segments to specify the 4 cartons. The PO4 segment is used to report the quantity of blankets contained in one shipping container. The Item loop will specify the shipped SKU and the total quantity shipped for that SKU (24 each).
