EDI 867 - Product Transfer and Resale Report


The EDI 867 document (also referred to as EDI Product Transfer and Resale Report) serves several purposes for both buyers and sellers. It may report information relevant to a product that has been transferred to a new location, or it can report the sales of a product from several different locations. It may also be used to report returns from customers to a distribution center or retail location, or to report demand that surpassed sales.

In food service, the Product Transfer and Resale Report is commonly used by the seller to transmit invoicing information and sales commissions earned by brokers. It may also be used by a co-op or distributor to communicate to the supplier purchases that were made by the retailers for promotional tracking.
