Transportation Management System EDI 753/754 Routing Requests

A push-button solution for complex EDI documents

Some trading partners such as JCPenney, Cabela’s, Kohl’s and AAFES use 753 Request for Routing and 754 Routing Instructions to communicate final routing information for purchase orders, purchase order overrides and to authorize shipments. While most inbound EDI purchase orders include shipment destination information and dates, these retailers are now sending or planning to send purchase orders (850s) without finalized routing instructions. This information is sent later, via the 754. This process has a limited time window – as little as 24 hours prior to shipment. When the final routing instructions are received from the partner, a final ASN is created at the click of a mouse and never requires duplicate data entry.

While routing requests complicate the EDI transaction process, Vantage Point has a solution that makes it simple and efficient. Using the Vantage Point EDI 753 and 754 Routing Requests solution, you’ll be able to properly manage and respond to customer routing requests accurately with minimal added effort.
