EDI Multi-Order Processing
An Advanced Ship Notice may represent many EDI orders. Multi-order ship notices are acceptable on the same Bill of Lading. The sender should choose whichever method is best for the sender – a single supplier order or many orders. The buyer should be prepared to receive both types.
With the multi-order processing option, one Ship Notice/Manifest fully describes the contents of a single Bill of Lading. In this scenario, the sender generates one ship notice representing the entire physical shipment consigned to a carrier. Many order levels may be present in the transaction — each referencing a different purchase order.
