License Plate Receive & the importance of EDI
Amazon Vendor has recently soft launched the requirement to have LP Receive (License Plate receive) across vendor shipments. This implementation is to reduce the handling/processing time and human error.
LP Receive is an industry - wide inbound process where multiple items are received by scanning a barcode known as SSCC ( Serialized Shipment Container Code) placed on the outside every carton, thus eliminating the need to open the carton and scan each item individually. LP receive is possible when the unique SSCC reference sent in your Advance Shipment Notification ( ASN - DESADV ) matches the SSCC number in the barcode.
Currently, vendors must be EDI-enabled with an up and running ASN through the EDI DESADV message (dispatch advice) for all deliveries, before their shipments can be LP received.
If you'd like more information about how KhooCommerce could support you through enabling an EDI integration with Amazon to lay the foundation for the LP Receive requirements, do not hesitate to get in touch.
