Direct Import, SSCC-18, and ASN

    Looking for suggestions on handling SSCC-18 generation in direct import scenarios.  By "direct import," I am referring to a scenario where we receive a customer PO, create a SO, create a matching PO to our supplier, and then the supplier ships directly to our customer.

    Each outbound carton must have a GS1-128 label with a unique SSCC-18 number.  When not in a direct import scenario and shipping to our customers from our warehouse, we generate the SSCC-18 numbers in AX and therefore have the required data for labeling and for ASNs.

    If a supplier ships directly to our customer, we still need a solution to generate the SSCC-18s but that data then needs to be available both in our system as well as the supplier's ... in our system for ASN transmission and in the supplier's system for label printing and application.

    How have others address this solution?

    Things to consider:

    • regardless of which system generates the SSCC-18 numbers, the data needs to be shared between both our system and the supplier's system ... how is the data shared?
    • assuming we send the ASN, what is the trigger in our system to do that?
