Macy’s 856 EDI (Ship Notice/Manifest) – Standard Carton Pack Structure Guides
A separate Macy’s 856 EDI (Ship Notice/Manifest) Ship Notice must be generated and transmitted for each Macy’s facility/shipment. ‘Ship To’ information may be obtained from the Macy’s Transportation Routing Guide. Macy’s 856 EDI (Ship Notice/Manifest) must be in Macy’s system before vendor shipment arrives at the distribution facility. The retailer requires a consolidated VICS Macy’s 856 EDI (Ship Notice/Manifest) 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 EDI (Ship Notice/Manifest) per carton. The tracking number should be the number used in the REF BM segment of the ship notice. A separate ship notice must be provided for each Master Bill of Lading.
In the case of multiple truck loads, each truck load requires a unique BOL and a separate ship notice. The requirements for Macy’s 856 EDI (Ship Notice/Manifest) are based on VICS 5010. Refer to individual manuals for differences in standards.
Macy’s now requires vendors to send the order level PID segment to indicate compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Functional Acknowledgments will be sent for all documents transmitted to Macy’s by vendors.
