Customer EDI Story- Valve Products Manufacturer

Here is a brief customer EDI story about a valve products manufacture that we work with. A client of ours, a leading global manufacturer of high-quality valve products, faced a significant challenge when their trading partners mandated changes to their Advanced Ship Notices (ASN) in the ANSI X12 format. These changes required the industrial products manufacturer to incorporate the Pack Level into their ASN structure, adding complexity to their shipping process. As industries increasingly made ASNs mandatory, the industrial products manufacturer found themselves needing to adapt to new requirements. This included incorporating the Pack Level into their ASN structure, making the Item Level a child of the parent Pallet loop rather than the Order level as it was before. Additionally, some trading partners demanded a new carton/pallet SSCC (UCC-128) label format.
