Every Seller and Shipper participating in Cahoot's Warehouse Exchange Program will receive access to their custom Advanced Shipping Notice created by the Cahoot team. The ASN is used for managing inbound shipments and other information, such as all SKUs associated with each product, special storage instructions, inbound shipping service(s) used, etc. As a Shipping partner, you are responsible to fill out the "Receiving" tab on the ASN within 24 hours of delivery. This article will show you how to properly fill out the ASN for inbound shipments.
Receiving shipments from the Cahoot Network is relatively straightforward.
- You will be given advance notification about products, quantities, shipping instructions, storage instructions, etc. in a printable format and should be cut out and securely affixed to the bin, shelf, case-packed box, or pallet where the inventory is being stored. These materials are to be used to ensure pick and pack accuracy.
- Receiving details should be added to the RECEIVING tab of your Cahoot Advance Shipping Notice within 24 hours of delivery, including date, quantity, condition, bin location in the warehouse where the inventory is stored, etc.
- Add the receivers initials to certify shipment quantity and condition
Partner inventory should be stored in clearly marked “bin” locations and treated as though it is your own. Any special storage conditions communicated by Cahoot must be followed (they will be confirmed with all parties in advance of shipping the inventory).
All partner inventory needs to have SKU barcodes on the partner inventory for use with our Scan Verification module.
If any partner inventory is missing a Product Barcode, please print and add Product Barcodes to the needed inventory and let Cahoot Support know immediately.
