Logistics Operations Impacts for Carriers

Carrier Notification Content:

  • Similar to non-ROH shipments today, you can expect the logistics contact (LSC = Logistics Service Coordinator) being mentioned on the bottom of the carrier notification.
  • The way the name of the company appears in the shipping address may change. The physical location (street, city) remains unchanged.
  • The plant and address codes you may see in EDI versions of the carrier notification will change.
  • The explicit reference to ROH will disappear. It is important to read the loading point address.

Carrier Notification Transmission:

  • In general, the current method (fax, email, EDI) remains in place.
  • We aim to automate the carrier notification transmission in most sites.
  • You will be approached to verify recipient data.
  • If you are receiving EDI Carrier Notifications for Rohm and Haas (ROH) today, then you will keep receiving EDI Carrier Notifications. You should have already been in contact with our experts.
  • If you are receiving EDI Carrier Notifications for non-ROH shipments today, you should have been already approached with the question whether we can send these EDI messages also for ROH shipments.

Operations:

  • There will be a split of plant codes for some warehouses into a bonded and a non-bonded version which may impact shipment combinations.

Cut over procedures:

  • You should expect that as of implementation date you will receive replacing new shipment numbers for transports still to be executed which were communicated before that date.
  • You must be prepared to handle this situation in your IT systems to ensure that drivers will come to load with new reference numbers.
  • We will provide more details concerning the precise timing of the related communications and the layout of the shipment number reference file
