Adient EDI Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN) Requirements
Adient EDI Advanced Shipping Notice is the electronic transfer of shipment data from a supplier to a customer. Accuracy is imperative in order to maintain the integrity of information related to inventory records, MRP/supplier schedules, and invoice payments. ASN timeliness is critical to information accuracy and functionality. Failure to send Adient EDI Advanced Shipping Notice will result in non-compliance on your Supplier Scorecard, the issuance of a DMR (discrepant material report), and the potential for a charge-back.
Each supplier to Adient, is responsible for complying with all customs laws and regulations as it relates to their activity with Adient. Suppliers are responsible for providing complete and accurate documentation for all international shipments. Documents must be sent with each cross border shipment. Documents include, but are not limited to, the Bill of Lading, Packing List, Commercial or Invoice, and a Certificate of Origin (NAFTA or other as requested) where applicable.
In order for the ASN to be successfully transmitted to the Adient plant, the ASN must contain all of the SPECIFIED INFORMATION listed below. ASN’s received without a BOL number will fail our rules and not be received, and a DMR will be issued for failure to send an ASN.
