The VDA 4913 message, typically known as Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN), is an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) document a customer gets from its supplier as a notification about an expected delivery. The file follows the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry or in German Verband der Automobilindustrie e. V.) standards and is used by many manufacturers in the automotive industries. The new VDA 4987 message replaces the legacy VDA 4913 message.
VDA 4913 ASN messages inform customers about deliveries shipped by the supplier. The information contains the relevant details of a shipment. A VDA 4913 message contains also the information describing how the shipped materials are packed. In this sense the VDA 4913 ASN message serves as a classic delivery note.
A VDA 4913 message is often used as a follow-up message on a delivery schedule, which was commonly sent before via a VDA 4905 message. The customer first sends a delivery plan as VDA 4905, outlining what the supplier has to deliver at which time. As part of the delivery, the supplier then creates a VDA 4913 ASN message indicating this delivery schedule.
As the VDA 4913 is actually an EDIFACT DESADV derivate and can be seen as an automotive-specific DESADV. EDIFACT formats like DESADVs are commonly known and used in the EU and ASIA. In the NAFTA region, on the other side, the ANSI X12 856 message is used to exchange such delivery data.
In case you are late start using VDA 4987 ASNs instead of VDA 4913 so that your supplier ratings stay on a high level. With SEEBURGER you swiftly move to the new format and get a more stable operation:
