EDI 947 – Warehouse Inventory Adjustment Advice

EDI 947 is an electronic data interchange (EDI) document commonly used among third-party logistics (3PL) providers and their suppliers / sellers. A 3PL or remote warehouse uses EDI 947 to communicate changes in inventory levels to suppliers / sellers (also referred to as depositors or manufacturers). Inventory levels drop during the standard flow of business. But inventory fluctuations or status changes could also come from warehousing damage or from products being placed on hold, respectively. Reporting adjustments to inventory is usually defined by contractual agreement — between a 3PL and a supplier / seller, for instance. An EDI 947 contains:

• Product ID
• Warehouse adjustment item detail (quantity, reason for adjustment)
• Party ID (warehouse identifier)
• Adjustment number and date
• Contact information
• Special instructions
• Contract summary (between warehouse, depositor)
