EDI 852 News:
Thursday, December 29, 2011
Most large retail trading partners are capable of sending weekly and often times daily 852 product activity reports. However, due to the fact the 852 is an after sale report, most trading partners do not include it within the required documents bundle needed to setup an EDI relationship so you may not be aware of it.
At this point you may be thinking if it isn't required, then why should I worry about it? The 852 can be a powerful tool if fully utilized. Knowing the specific store location and geographic region your product is being sold in down at the UPC level is an advantage in predicting future sales requirements, which in turn will allow your warehouse to effectively forecast inventory replenishment and lead time.
