Macy’s 856 ASN Pick/Pack Structure (Vendor Direct to Consumer (V2C) Orders)
Macy’s 856 ASN Pick/Pack notes presented below outline of what is required when receiving VICS 856 Ship Notice from a vendor. Many Macy’s divisions use more than one distribution facility; therefore you must generate and transmit a separate Macy’s 856 ASN Pick/Pack for each facility/shipment. ‘Ship To’ information may be obtained from the Corporate Transportation Routing Guide.
As it was already mentioned in our posts described Macy’s 856 transaction, Macy’s 856 ASN Pick/Pack EDI document must be in Macy’s system before supplier shipment arrives at Macy’s distribution facility. An expense offset will be assessed by the retailer if this or other EDI requirements for Macy’s vendors are not met.
Macy’s requires a consolidated VICS Macy’s 856 Pick/Pack document with carton level information for every shipment to a Macy’s distribution facility. However, the industry standard for merchandise shipped by small package carriers (for example, RPS or UPS) requires one Macy’s 856 ASN Pick/Pack per carton. The tracking number should be the number used in the REF BM segment of the Macy’s 856 ASN Pick/Pack EDI transaction.
