Home Depot is in the process of implementing a warehouse management system
As a result of this change, Home Depot is moving all of their vendors (over the next year it) to consolidated ASN format. The Consolidation is at the Trailer Level - NOT at the DC/Transit facility level. i.e., looking to receive ONE ASN per Trailer.
The change will be implemented in phases, and the workaround temporarily is to send a unique Bill of Lading number per PO, and they are using the Carrier/Pro number to tie the asns together. This will work until consolidation is in place.
