Albertsons EDI Practices
EDI is the computer to computer exchange of business documents in a standardized format. These standards detail the format of over 200 business transactions that companies exchange on a daily basis. The standards spell out not only the format of the records that make up the business document, but also specify the communications methods for transferring the documents and the sequence of events in the exchange. Copies of the standards can be obtained directly from the Standards organizations.
As an alternative to this premium, Albertsons does offer direct dial communications to all of our trading partners, thus saving them the total cost of using a VAN to communicate with us. For details on how to dial direct with Albertsons, see our "Direct Dial to Albertsons" document.
How to get started with EDI to Albertsons
We suggest the first thing that you do is download the appropriate Implementation Guide for the transactions you will be communicating with Albertsons. Next, from EDI FORMS, fill out the Trading Partner Information form and submit. When the EDS analyst receives the completed Trading Partner Information Page, they will contact you and provide you with list of item codes that are currently on file with Albertsons for your company. Upon receiving the list of item UPCs you should verify that the list is accurate and complete and have Albertsons buyers correct any errors before we start exchanging purchase orders and invoices that are based on these codes.
