The Cardinal-Kinray integration specified below is scheduled to be effective as of Monday 08/01/11. This communication is specifically for EDI-related items.

The Kinray Location ID traded in the N104 elements will be PK0070297. This will be in effect through 08/12/11, after which date a new DEA# will be used. Notifications will be sent with this new ID prior to then.

There will be no EDI traffic from Kinray to Suppliers after 07/31/11. You should not receive any documents from the Kinray ID after this date, with the exception of requested resends.

In some cases, as noted below, depending on outstanding items, it may be necessary to submit the same transaction set for Kinray activity to both Kinray and Cardinal. For those of you that cannot accommodate two EDI IDs for the same Location ID, please submit the Kinray-directed items via hard-copy or FAX. EDI traffic to Kinray will not be accepted after 09/30/11.

All EDI Sender/Receiver ID’s will remain the same as currently used between Cardinal and your Company.

Kinray will be included as an additional Cardinal location in all currently traded documents, with the above DEA# Identifier, in the N104 element. There will be no changes in existing Cardinal mapping for either inbound or outbound documents.
