 How can the Advance Shipment Notice (ASN)/ Advance Shipment and Billing Notice be created and processed using the Vision Demo instance using iSupplier Portal?



What is an Advance Shipment Notice (ASN)?

An Advance Shipment Notice (ASN) is transmitted via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) from a supplier to let the receiving organization know that a shipment is coming.


A supplier creates an ASN based on the demand conveyed by the purchasing organization's Purchase Order, Planning Schedule, or Shipping Schedule.



The ASN is more than just a confirmation that our shipment is on its way,  it’s also a resource and has the potential to save time. ASNs are particularly helpful when
it comes to unloading the goods and managing the inventory. Before the shipment is sent, suppliers can place helpful labels or bar codes on their shipping containers or boxes, and these
will include the same information as the ASN. As the shipment arrives, the labels are scanned and the ASN (Pre-Receipt) is located in the system and processed as a receipt.
The process of doing a receipt is simplified and items can be scanned as they come off the transportation vehicle.   The ASN can also make it easy to identify differences between
what was expected, as compared to -  what was actually shipped.  Add in the Billing Notice (Invoice) to complete the payables portion of the receiving.
