News & Updates


Nordstrom.com Suppliers: Nordstrom.com POs going forward will no longer start with a '0'. While there will be residual POs with the leading '0', new POs will not.  Suppliers will need to read their SDQ segment on their EDI 850 and utilize the Store / DC List in Section 8 of the Routing Guide. 





Nordstrom has implemented phase 1 of our OpenText | GXS Active Intelligence (AI) portal.  This phase is all about validating EDI data.


This new tool monitors EDI documents being received from our trading partners as well as sends out email alerts when the data contains mapping / formatting issues (during phase 1 suppliers will not be going into the portal as they will only be receiving email notifications). It is important to read and act quickly to these email notifications, resubmitting data when necessary; if this is done prior to your shipment being received at our warehouses, errors could be caught before they become issues in our supply chain. Expense offset fees may still apply If it cannot be resubmitted, is not done timely for that order or there are additional discrepancies; however suppliers still need to take the opportunity to fix the issue(s) for future orders.  


We are happy to partner with our valued suppliers and OpenText |GXS to help improve product flow through our facilities with the added benefit of reducing or eliminating EDI expense offset fees.


Phase II will be expanding our portal service with deduction management for expense offset fees; phase II implementation will be announced at a later date.
