Kroger utilizes both the UCS and the ANSI X12 EDI Standards used to send and receive EDI transaction sets. Kroger requires most companies to use EDI to accept purchase orders and send invoices. Some vendors are also required to send advance ship notices (ASNs) via EDI.

The retailer stipulates that “vendors who accept product orders that require shipment to any Kroger distribution center ("DC") are required to have the ability to receive the issued purchase order via EDI as well as to return the associated invoice via EDI.” 

Vendors who fail to meet this requirement within 90 days are subject to invoice processing fees, which can be up to 1% or $250 of the total invoice amount. Vendors may also face consequences for inaccurate transaction data or delayed transactions, in the case of ASNs.
