INSDES (Instruction to dispatch message)
Instruction to despatch message
A sender of the message informs their business partner (often a logistics service provider) that manages ordered goods about requirements for shipping and delivery to the end customer according to given instructions. It can also be used by the customer to inform the supplier about a requirement for dispatch (delivery) of previously ordered goods. The message allows to send information about requirements for delivery of goods to multiple places of delivery using one message only.
It identifies goods, delivery places, delivery dates and also other information about parties involved or, for example, conditions of delivery.
Codes GTIN are used to identify goods, or in case of delivery by pallets, labelling of pallets by serial code of SSCC logistics unit. To identify parties involved, global localization codes GLN are used.
