PO & Subcontract Packing Slip

The PO can be faxed, emailed or attached to the packer. However you want
to communicate it to the Supplier. Many companies don't want the pricing
on the paperwork going to the Supplier. This could be because the
company doesn't want it being seen by the employees or the supplier
doesn't want it seen by their employees. This is one of the reasons for
the subcontract packer.



In my opinion, PDF the PO and email it or print it and fax it. This way
they have it before the shipment arrives.

Subject: [Vantage] PO & Subcontract Packing Slip





My company is trying to figure out how to handle a subcontract purchase
order and the subcontract packing slip. The way it has been explained to
me from Epicor is that you create the PO and then create the packing
slip. You send the packing slip out to the subcontractor with the parts
for processing. They sign it and the packing slip comes back to you. We
are trying to decide if you should send a copy of the PO along with the
packing slip for your subcontractor. That way your subcontractor has a
PO and you bring back the signed packing slip for proof of receipt.

We are currious on how other companies are handling this

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

The PO is needed by your supplier because when they invoice you for the
service, they should reference the PO. The packing slip is more for you and
your customer to "tag" that shipment on what it is. Sometimes it just stays
with the parts the whole time. In a shop that I was running, when the parts
left the building a copy of the PO was attached to the traveler and left in
a Subcontract folder, waiting for the parts to be returned. Because the
parts would comeback sometimes with no paperwork from the supplier. The PO
then told us how to receive in the parts.

Best of luck
