Some trading partners such as JC Penney, Cabela's, Kohl's, and AAFES use 753 Request for Routing and 754 Routing Instructions to communicate final routing information for purchase orders, purchase order overrides and to authorize shipments. While most inbound EDI purchase orders include shipment destination information and dates, these retailers are now sending or planning to send purchase orders (850s) without finalized routing instructions. This information is sent later, via the 754. This process has a limited time window – as little as 24 hours prior to shipment.
