EDI 753: Request for Routing


What is an EDI 753?

The EDI 753 - Request for Routing File Instructions allows suppliers to request routing instructions from the buyer while also providing general information about the merchandise that will be shipped, thereby allowing the purchasing partner to better control their business inventory and reduce transportation costs.


How to use an EDI 753?

The EDI 753 - Request for Routing transaction is sent to the buying organization for routing instructions. Once the buyer receives an EDI 753, they will reply with an EDI 754 back to the sender, outlining specific routing instructions. After the EDI 754 is received, a final EDI 856 (Advanced Shipping Notice) is created to eliminate the risk of a duplicate entry. The EDI 753 is generally used by business partners that send EDI 850's (Purchase Orders) without finalized routing instructions.
