EDI 867 Product Transfer and Resale Report File Format

The EDI 867 transaction set represents a Product Transfer and Resale Report. It is used to provide information on a product that has been transferred to a new location within a company, or to report sales of a product from multiple locations to an end customer (i.e., point-of-sale, or POS, data). It may also be used to communicate returns from customers to distribution center or retail locations. Each 867 document includes the following information:
  • Organization identification information
  • Product transfer and resale detail, including quantity, purchase order, type codes and contract identifiers
  • Transaction totals in terms of line items, their weights and other units of measure
The 867 transaction set is used in a variety of industries. It is perhaps most commonly used by retailers to communicate to their vendors on the sales of their products at individual store locations. But it can be used by manufacturers and virtually every type of reseller, including wholesalers, distributors, retailers and the like. For example, wholesalers may use the 867 to communicate to a manufacturer about the movements of their product to other wholesale locations, or to other downstream channel partners, and to detail returns from these locations to the wholesaler. The 867 is also used by utilities to communicate meter information – that is, information on usage of electricity, natural gas, etc. In addition, the 867 may be used by these utilities to transmit allowance transfer information to the US Environmental Protection Agency. The 867 is similar to the 852 transaction set, which is used by resellers to provide information on product inventory and sales levels to the manufacturers of those products.
