In Electronic Document Interchange (EDI), an EDI 945 Warehouse Shipping Advice serves as a shipment confirmation. It is sent from the warehouse to a shipping partner that a shipment has taken place.
An EDI 945 Shipment Advice is deployed from the warehouse following a successfully completed EDI 940 Warehouse Shipping Order. An 856 Advance Ship Notice and an 810 Invoice are also associated with the EDI 945 Warehouse Shipping Advice. The two are provided to the recipient after the supplier has reconciled the quantity shipped against the order quantity.
