Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN)

Advanced shipping notice is a message containing important details of the shipment sent by the vendor to the customer at the time of shipment.

What is Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN) ?
Advanced Shipment Notice, usually sent through EDI, notifies the customer about the order, items, quantity, estimated time of arrival, and other physical characteristics of the shipment. The ASN gets uploaded in the client’s warehouse management system. The shipment is then received at the destination after being processed by the transportation management system. 

ASN minimizes room for human errors and simplifies the inventory management process. It enables the supplier to easily identify and correct shipment errors and the customer to identify any missing goods. It also makes it easier for the client to arrange for outbound transportation if necessary as they are provided with all the required details of their shipment. Customers tend to reprimand when vendors fail to communicate ASN to them at the time of shipment. Hence, the transmission of ASN is necessary to ensure better customer satisfaction.
