EDI 830

The EDI 830 “Planning Schedule with Release” is a scheduling document primarily used by retailers to provide forecasts about products—ie. we think we’ll need 1000 units in Store X in six months. It gives suppliers enough time to react and make adjustments to meet either growing demand or slowing sales.

What’s in an EDI 830?

While primarily used for planning purposes, the EDI 830 does have functional elements. It can include:

  • Vendor numbers
  • Current inventory
  • Buyer authorization—important for many sellers to have before they commit resources in order to meet demand
  • An order release

When is an EDI 830 typically issued?

The EDI 830 is usually sent well in advance of a Purchase Order, since it is a forecasting tool. It is typically exchanged by trading partners who have an established relationship with a brand and a consistent track record of sales.
