Warehouse Shipping Order
EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Order
An EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Order is an EDI transaction that is sent by a supplier to authorize the third party logistics company (3PL) or warehouse to ship to the buyer such as a retailer, grocer, distributor or trading partner. EDI 940 is a request for shipment of goods from a 3PL or warehouse to the buyer. EDI 940 instructs the supplier's 3PL or warehouse what, how much and when to ship. It can also be used to modify or cancel an existing EDI 940 transaction.

How to Use EDI 940 Transaction
EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Orders are used by suppliers, manufacturers and sellers to ship goods from a third party logistics company or warehouse to the retailer, grocer or buyer/trading partner's location. The EDI 940 provides the information to the warehouse or 3PL of products to ship, quantities to ship and when to ship.
Additionally, the EDI 940 transaction can be used to modify or cancel and existing Warehouse Shipping Order.
When the warehouse or 3PL receives the EDI 940 transaction, once processed they'll respond to the supplier with an EDI 945 Warehouse Shippping Notice, which notifies the supplier of the pending shipment and estimated delivery date.
