Do It Best Corp. EDI Order Processing
Do it Best Corp. requires that all purchase orders be processed via EDI. Please see the EDI Processing guidelines.
All Retail Service Center orders will indicate a specific “Ship Date” and “Arrival Date”. The Ship Date is used for Collect orders and it specifies the date when the order should ship to the RSC. For backhauls and DIB contracted carriers, this is the day the product must be ready for pickup. As noted on the PO, you must call a minimum of 48 hours in advance of the ship date so arrangements can be made.
The Arrival Date is used for Prepaid orders and it specifies the date the order should arrive at Do it Best Corp. RSC. Shipping orders based on these criteria is critical to achieving a high fill rate for members.
- Late orders cause out-of-stock situations that hurt service levels
- Early orders cause interruptions in receiving other scheduled orders
It is the vendor’s responsibility to advise the Merchandise Manager of any anticipated changes in order lead-time. Unanticipated changes in order lead-time cause service level problems at RSCs. By having advance notice of shipping delays, Do it Best Corp. will be able to accurately adjust its forecasts.
