The EDI 862 transaction set is an electronic version of a paper Shipping Schedule that complies with the ANSI X12 EDI specification. It is used to convey actual requirements of shipping schedule to a supplier. The 862 transaction set may supplement and add more specific instructions to a previous EDI 830 Planning Schedule document but it does not replace the 830 transaction set. A buyer will send an 862 Shipping Schedule to the supplier in order to state short term requirements and shipping schedules. It is important to note that EDI 862 does not authorize utilization of labour, materials or any other resources.
