The EDI 940 transaction set is an electronic version of a paper Warehouse Shipping Order that complies with the ANSI X12 EDI specification. It is used by a supplier to advice a remote warehouse when to ship an order/orders to a buyer. This transaction set can be used to confirm a shipment, or modify or cancel a previously transmitted shipping order. After the EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Order transaction is received by the warehouse, a 997 Functional Acknowledgement is sent back to the supplier to indicate that they successfully received EDI 940 transaction. It also provides shipment details to the supplier which needed to send out their advance shipment notices (EDI 856), and an EDI 810 invoice.
