EDI shipping label creation can be cumbersome for many of our customers. Some clients have to devise labels manually and print them one by one, inviting typos and other errors detrimental to an order.Therefore, we have created a tool to ease the pain.With BOLD Label Cloud, clients route EDI-compliant GS1/UCC-128 labels directly to their local computers or warehouse for printing.BOLD Label Cloud produces the proper labels for you. This solution generates tags from all the information already gathered in our EDI solution, so you know it's correct and compliant with your partners' requirements.

How does BOLD Label Cloud work?

BOLD Label Cloud runs in tandem with our managed services solution. First, BOLD VAN receives order data from your vendors and confirms receipt of the data by sending you a 997 functional acknowledgment document. (The 997 is an EDI-compliant electronic receipt. It essentially tells our clients, “Yes, we have the info from your customer, and we are on it!”)BOLD VAN transforms the data into the proper EDI format and loads it into its distribution enablement system (DES), which you can learn more about here.

What EDI shipping methods does BLC support?

Users can ship their merchandise in many ways. We support labels for cartons, pallets, mixed pallets, and pick-and-pack packages. With BOLD Label Cloud, you choose the appropriate label, and it makes a beeline to your printer; it's that simple.Next, BOLD VAN sends out the 856 advance ship notice, notifying your customer of what's heading their way. Finally, it's payday: BOLD VAN transmits the invoice. Rest assured, every single document complies with EDI. We take care of all of this so that you can focus on other areas of your business.

What is a GS1/UCC-128 EDI shipping label?

The manufacturing and retail industries use GS1/UCC-128 EDI shipping labels the most. The EDI-compliant label contains pertinent information, such as the item packed and quantity. Shippers place the sticker on the pallet or carton, the package leaves the warehouse, and receivers scan the label.Finally, inventory numbers reflect the received shipment, and all is right in the world.
