Animates EDI message requirements:

Purchase Order (PO)

There are two different types of purchase orders, based on where the order originates, although they are substantially the same:

  • Distribution Centre/ Warehouse Orders
  • Retail Store Orders

Delivery Forecast Note (DFN)

A DFN is sent by suppliers practicing Just In Time Ordering. These suppliers tend to be those for whom Purchase Orders are not raised prior to delivery. Typically the highly perishable items are delivered at least once per day, and any dated stock is removed by the supplier. This is currently only available for use by Foodstuffs South Island.

A Purchase Order must be Acknowledged before a set period of time, usually two hours. An Order Message must arrive prior to an ASN
