An advance shipping notice (also known as EDI 856, EDI ASN, advance shipment notice, 856 manifest or DESADV/dispatch advice message) is an EDI document providing details of your shipment. Key elements in the 856 manifest include: tracking number, carrier information, delivery date/time, order/product details and units shipped. The EDI 856 ASN is one of the most common EDI transactions used for retailers, eCommerce/dropship, OEMs and trading partners.

UCC-128 barcode shipping labels are generated from the EDI 856 Advance Shipment Notification manifest (ASN). The UCC-128 is a tracking number placed on the carton which indicates what is inside that carton and how it is packed. The EDI 856 transaction and UCC-128 barcode label automate the procurement process for the receiving shipments and providing greater visibility, tracking, planning and product reconciliation.
UCC-128 labels differ from FedEx, UPS or other carrier labels. FedEx, UPS and other carrier labels deliver the carton from door to the DCs receiving dock while the UCC-128 label delivers the carton from the receiving dock to the store and/or catalog center’s inventory bin.
