Advance Ship Notice (ASN)

Advance Ship Notice (ASN) is a document that answers to the following questions for buying organizations:
  • What order(s) shipped?
  • What items are being shipped and how many?
  • When will the order(s) arrive?
  • Does the shipment contain the complete order?
  • Is the shipment packaged with barcodes for easy receiving?
  • What is the FedEx, UPS or USPS tracking number? (drop-ship orders)

It is sometimes called an Outbound Ship Notice, Manifest, DESADV or EDI 856.
