Dock Scheduling TMS/JDA

EDI and Dock Scheduling

Carriers who utilize either EDI 212 or EDI 163 messages will be able to transmit their appointment request electronically from their system to the JDA Dock Scheduling portal.

The appointment requests should contain the same information that you would use if entering through the JDA portal. This includes the Best Buy location ID, all associated shipments with underlying POs, BOL information, and carton counts for each delivering PO.

The sub-sections on this page detail each EDI message and the different variables when submitting your appointment request via EDI vs. the JDA Dock Scheduling portal.
