Advanced Ship Notice Structure: Multiple POs Packed in the Same Shipping Container

Some retailers allow more than one PO for the same buying location to be packed within the same physical shipping container when the orders are destined for the same location. When this occurs, the buyer’s purchase order should be referenced at the Item level, rather than at the Order level.

In the following example, two buyer purchase orders have been combined in one supplier order and are packed in the same physical shipping container. Both orders will be shipped to the buyer’s distribution center (2222), and marked for the same buying location (1111). The Order level specifies the buying location. One item is shipped for Purchase Order 77777. Two items are shipped for Purchase Order 88888.

The Item levels specify the SKU contents of the shipping container:

  • The SKU identification
  • The quantity shipped, and
  • The buyer’s original purchase order number.

Pick and Pack is the only data structure which can be used when referencing more than one Purchase Order packed in the same physical shipping container.
