EDI 856 : Ship Notice/Manifest

An EDI 856 transaction is used to inform your trading partners about the contents of a shipment. It is the equivalent of a printed packing slip. It also informs the buyer that the goods have been shipped, how they are packaged and when to expect the shipment.

An EDI 856 transaction is often followed by an EDI 810 transaction (invoice) An EDI 856 contains the following elements :
  • Tracking number and carrier information
  • Purchase order number
  • Line items and how they are packaged
  • UCC128 Bar codes printed on each carton
