In an effort to effectively streamline the EDI invoice process, we will be making a change in the specifications of EDI 810 invoice, wherein the shipped date (code -011) will be made mandatory in the DTM segment.
The purpose of this segment is to let our A/P department know about the shipping date details.
Inter-American Products requests you to start sending DTM segment in the EDI invoices , at least with a value of ‘011’ for DTM01 element and the ‘shipped date’ for the DTM02 element , if you are not doing so . In case you are already sending required details in the DTM segment, no action is required at your end.
If you are using a third party provider for EDI , please forward this e-mail to them so that they can take necessary steps. Attached with this email is the document explaining the change further.
We thank you in advance for your support in this implementation . Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of any queries.
