Advanced Shipment Notice

Advanced Shipment Notice is a document that goes ahead of a shipment that informs the receiver of all the details regarding the shipment. In that document, info may vary from expected time of arrival, SKU’s, barcodes, quantities, mode of transportation, weight, and packaging description. This is often sent over the Internet in an electronic data information (EDI) or extensible markup language (XML) format. The prime reason of this document is that the receiver will be ready and able to receive the shipment.
