Belk EDI requirements and guidelines for effective business operation
Belk EDI requirements are of a high importance for vendors already working with Belk and those who are going to establish partnership. EDI is Belk’s standard method for communicating many of the business documents. By trading EDI documents with the vendors, both parties have an opportunity to significantly eliminate redundant data entry. All Belk EDI requirements are within the accepted VICS guidelines.

Belk EDI requirements say that a vendor send the 204/211 Motor Carrier Shipment Information to all freight carriers via version 4030 VICS.
All EDI documents according to Belk EDI requirements (except invoices) must be at the UPC level. Therefore, you must be 100% UPC marked and provide your UPC catalog electronically before Belk can trade with you.
Belk informs that it will no longer require or utilize packing slips as part of the receiving process for those vendors who utilize Advanced Shipment Notices (ASN’s). If Belk has not received accurate ASN’s prior to the time that the respective shipment is physically received at our Distribution Center, an expense-offset charge of $10 per carton will be assessed to the vendor.
