Introduction to EDI 856 Advance Ship Notice
Introduction
This document provides instructions for implementing the EDI 856 Advance Ship Notice transaction. This
document is divided into the following sections:
•
•
•
Introduction to EDI – A basic introduction of EDI and the 856.
Non-Technical Reference Materials – Includes contact and protocol information.
Technical Guidelines – Your IT or technical staff will need this information to successfully implement the
856.
While this guide is largely intended for technical personnel, the introductory information allows you to gain a full
understanding of why EDI is used and what the benefits are to you. If you are not a technical resource, we
recommend you read this introduction prior to turning this guide over to any IT/technical resources who may
implement the 856 for your organization.
If you have questions about conducting business with Cardinal Health or EDI concerns beyond the 856, please
consult the guide Supplier Reference Manual: Pharmaceutical Supply Chain.
What is EDI?
EDI is an electronic sharing of information in a global standardized format. Traditionally, communications between
business partners (like purchase orders or invoices) were conducted on paper and sent via mail or fax.
With the advent of electronic file sharing, communicating such information electronically greatly reduces the time
and resources required to manage such interactions. ANSI (American National Standards Institute) is the
governing organization that establishes EDI standards. Within ANSI, HDMA (the Healthcare Distribution
Management Association) establishes standards unique to the health care industry. However, HDMA standards
always fall within ANSI standards; they do not conflict with nor negate one another.
Ideally, when trading partners use standardized communications in accordance with ANSI and HDMA,
communications are automated and efficient.
Types of EDI Transactions
Cardinal Health supports a range of EDI documents and transmission protocols to transfer information to and from
our business partners. In addition, Cardinal Health maintains partnerships with various communication and van
providers and complies with both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Healthcare Distribution
Management Association (HDMA) EDI guidelines. Cardinal Health sends and receives EDI data every 30 minutes.

The Importance of the 856
The 856 is critical to timely and seamless receipt of shipments we receive from you. It contains information about
items being shipped, including purchase order number, ship date, estimated delivery date, lot number, and
supplier DEA number.
By receiving a valid and timely 856, Cardinal Health can correctly anticipate shipments you send us. When
Cardinal Health doesn’t receive a valid 856 file:
•
•
•
Visibility doesn’t exist for incoming shipments
Shipments cannot be reconciled with purchase orders.
Manual follow-ups, such as phone calls and emails, must take place to resolve the discrepancy.
EDI Requirements
By the time you are ready to implement the 856, you have already been through new supplier setup and testing.
As a reminder about your EDI requirements to do business with Cardinal Health, please keep the following
requirements in mind.
• Cardinal Health expects the supplier to be fully engaged and compliant with all applicable EDI
requirements. Compliance is required within 90 days of becoming a supplier or upon notification of noncompliance.
• Suppliers are required to send a 997 within 24 hours of receiving any EDI transmission from Cardinal
Health.
• Suppliers are required to monitor 997s received from Cardinal Health. If a 997 has not been received or
contains faulty data, you must take prompt action to resolve the issue.
• Suppliers are required to maintain compatible electronic document version numbers in accordance with
Cardinal Health’s current software.
EDI Workflow
To illustrate the flow between Cardinal Health and our suppliers via EDI, the following flowchart is provided:
EDI Benefits
The 856 is just one part of an overall EDI implementation with Cardinal Health. Benefits of a successful EDI
program save money and time for all involved.
EDI saves time and money. When suppliers provide ASN information to Cardinal Health via EDI it
reduces the need to make follow-up phone calls for troubleshooting. On average, that reduces the amount
of supplier inquires by 57 percent when providing ASN data compared with suppliers who don ‘t. This
efficiency alone offsets any cost of the implementation and maintenance, and similar savings should be
enjoyed by you with successful ASN implementation.
We can proactively reduce the number of unnecessary deductions. Our distribution centers are able
to use 856 data to enhance the accuracy of discrepancy reporting and to proactively reduce the number of
unnecessary deductions.
Successful ASN implementation will improve your NLC Supplier Scorecard. Cardinal Health
provides each NLC supplier with a “scorecard”, measuring many aspects of your service level. The ASN is
one such grading criterion. By increasing the measures of your service level, you can improve your
standing with Cardinal Health.
ASN data will become vital to Pedigree requirements in the future. More and more states within the
U.S. are requiring pedigree data for certain shipments. ASN's can provide the data necessary to assist
with serialized receiving and reduce turnaround time of the product.
Our standards are industry standards. Most companies conduct business via EDI, and the terms of EDI
are written to universal standards as defined by American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Additionally, Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA) provides valuable guidelines that
are specific to our supply chain while staying within the boundaries of larger EDI standards. This means
no proprietary formatting is necessary for you to become compliant. Any steps you take to successfully
implement EDI with Cardinal Health also may benefit you with your other business partner transactions.
Required Fields
The next section, the EDI 856 Technical Guidelines, provides the EDI standard and technical documentation for
the universal standards. To simplify the process for you, below is a list of the 11 fields that Cardinal Health
requires in the 856 transaction. You may want to refer to both this section and the next for complete technical
guidelines, but this summary will allow you to focus on exactly what’s needed for a successful 856.
All fields below are required by the Cardinal Health Standard.

The unique identifiers applied to each pallet and case should conform to the GS1- 128 standard and to HDMA bar
code guidelines. These identifiers should be included within the Advance Shipping Notice (ASN) as prescribed by
HDMA EDI guidelines. These are required to help us comply with existing pedigree regulations in multiple states.
However, it is not necessary to label cases and pallets of narcotics and controlled drugs with unique identifiers,
and these are also not required in the ASN.

Purpose: This Standard contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Ship Notice/Manifest
Transaction Set (856) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction
set can be used to list the contents of a shipment of goods as well as additional information relating to the shipment,
such as order information, product description, physical characteristics, type of packaging, marking, carrier
information, and configuration of goods within the transportation equipment. The transaction set enables the sender
to describe the contents and configuration of a shipment in various levels of detail and provides an ordered flexibility
to convey information. The sender of this transaction is the organization responsible for detailing and communicating
the contents of a shipment, or shipments, to one or more receivers of the transaction set. The receiver of this
transaction set can be any organization having an interest in the contents of a shipment or information about the
contents of a shipment.

Comments:
1. The HL segment is used to identify levels of detail information using a hierarchical structure, such as relating
line-item data to shipment data, and packaging data to line-item data.
2. The HL segment defines a top-down/left-right ordered structure.
3. HL01 shall contain a unique alphanumeric number for each occurrence of the HL segment in the transaction
set. For example, HL01 could be used to indicate the number of occurrences of the HL segment, in which case
the value of HL01 would be "1" for the initial HL segment and would be incremented by one in each subsequent
HL segment within the transaction.
4. HL02 identifies the hierarchical ID number of the HL segment to which the current HL segment is subordinate.
5. HL03 indicates the context of the series of segments following the current HL segment up to the next
occurrence of an HL segment in the transaction. For example, HL03 is used to indicate that subsequent
segments in the HL loop form a logical grouping of data referring to shipment, order, or item-level information.
6. HL04 indicates whether or not there are subordinate (or child) HL segments related to the current HL segment.

Comments:
1. When specifying a routing sequence to be used for the shipment movement in lieu of specifying each carrier
within the movement, use TD502 to identify the party responsible for defining the routing sequence, and use
TD503 to identify the actual routing sequence, specified by the party identified in TD502.

line-item data to shipment data, and packaging data to line-item data.
2. The HL segment defines a top-down/left-right ordered structure.
3. HL01 shall contain a unique alphanumeric number for each occurrence of the HL segment in the transaction
set. For example, HL01 could be used to indicate the number of occurrences of the HL segment, in which case
the value of HL01 would be "1" for the initial HL segment and would be incremented by one in each subsequent
HL segment within the transaction.
4. HL02 identifies the hierarchical ID number of the HL segment to which the current HL segment is subordinate.
5. HL03 indicates the context of the series of segments following the current HL segment up to the next
occurrence of an HL segment in the transaction. For example, HL03 is used to indicate that subsequent
segments in the HL loop form a logical grouping of data referring to shipment, order, or item-level information.
6. HL04 indicates whether or not there are subordinate (or child) HL segments related to the current HL segment.

2. C0605 - If MAN06 is present, then MAN05 is required.
Semantics:
1. MAN01/MAN02 and MAN04/MAN05 may be used to identify two different marks and numbers assigned to the
same physical container.
2. When both MAN02 and MAN03 are used, MAN02 is the starting number of a sequential range and MAN03 is
the ending number of that range.
3. When both MAN05 and MAN06 are used, MAN05 is the starting number of a sequential range, and MAN06 is
the ending number of that range.
Comments:
1. When MAN01 contains code "UC" (U.P.C. Shipping Container Code) and MAN05/MAN06 contain a range of ID
numbers, MAN03 is not used. The reason for this is that the U.P.C. Shipping Container code is the same on
every carton that is represented in the range in MAN05/MAN06.
2. MAN03 and/or MAN06 are only used when sending a range(s) of ID numbers.
3. When both MAN02/MAN03 and MAN05/MAN06 are used to send ranges of ID numbers, the integrity of the two
ID numbers must be maintained.
