Kohl's is updating our Purchase Order documents to include the Transportation Terms and Codes for import orders only. This requirement will NOT impact domestic purchase orders. Trading Partners will need to be prepared to accept purchase orders with an incoterm code or any incoterm code changes.
Effective August, 19, 2011, all Trading Partners who receive import orders must be able to accommodate the following requirements:
This is a new requirement for import partners. Transportation Terms Codes Transportation Terms Qualifier Code and Transportation Terms Code will be communicated in the EDI 850 and EDI 860.
In the 850, in the FOB segment, the FOB04 field with the qualifier code of 01 and the FOB05 field with code FCA or FOB. In the 860, in the FOB segment, the FOB04 field with the qualifier code of 01 and the FOB05 field with code FCA or FOB. The incoterm does not need to be returned to Kohl's on any EDI documents.
Please refer to the 850 Purchase Order and 860 Purchase Order Change maps for details on these segments. These updated maps are available on www.connection.kohls.com. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these changes contact firstname.lastname@example.org with 850/860 Changes in the subject field. Trading Partners are required to ensure their internal applications and databases are equipped to handle these changes without any interruptions in service as of August 19, 2011.
We appreciate your continued support of these EDI enhancements as we continue to develop methods to manage our partnership more productively.
