Burlington EDI Standards and Procedures Basis

Should the sending party not receive a 997, the EDI Specialist must contact the Burlington’s EDI department to report the failed transmission. The sending party’s EDI Specialist must review each 997 and send corrected transmissions of rejections are indicated.
GS1-128/UCC-128 Bar-Coded Shipping Label
This label is used by the seller to communicate to the buyer’s warehouse specific information related to the carton to which the label is attached. Each label number and the contents of the cartons are entered on the 856 Advance Ship Notice/Manifest (ASN). All cartons shipped to Burlington’s distribution centers and/or stores are required to display a 4×6 GS1-128/UCC-128 bar-coded shipping label. The carton identifiers contained within the ASN must match those displayed on the shipping label. Carton IDs (LPN Numbers) are to remain within Burlington’s supply chain for a period of up to one year; do not re-use carton ID numbers during any one year period. Style, color, size, and quantity information is required on the UCC-128 label.
