Receiving EDI Purchase Orders
After both supplier and have completed system set up of EDI, the Wakefern EDI Coordinator will generate a test purchase order. The test is used to validate communications and translation. Unless directed otherwise by the supplier, Wakefern will send all purchase orders directly to the vendor. It is the responsibility of the vendor to provide the broker a copy of the purchase order. Carbon copy services are available with most VANs.
A functional acknowledgment is required for Wakefern purchase orders and any other EDI document sent from Wakefern.
The terms and conditions applicable to EDI purchase orders are stated in the Wakefern EDI Trading Partner Policy.
