x12 852 Product Activity Data

852 Specifications

The EDI 852 transaction set is the standard data format for providing trading partners with product SKU activity data, such as inventory levels, sales rates and other product movement-related information. An 852 may include any or all of the following information:

⇰ Item description and UPC
⇰ Quantity on hand
⇰ Quantity on order
⇰ Quantity sold
⇰ Sales forecast
⇰ Sales history and/or comparison to prior periods
Activity may be provided at a distribution center level or individual location or store level. Information may be provided in terms of dollars, units or both.

Many retailers actually require their suppliers to manage product activity and other point-of-sale (POS) data. The goal of this information sharing is to ensure inventory levels are properly maintained, and shipments are timely, as well as to drive lower inventory costs and a higher ROI.
