Welcome to Dot! This page provides the information and documents you need to complete all requirements for sending sample cases, publishing item data via Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN), submitting pricing information and setting up all transaction sets via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
A case sample of all stock items must be received by Dot Foods 8 weeks prior to first deliveries. Failure to provide Dot Foods with complete item data and case samples 8 weeks prior to first deliveries may result in a delayed launch.
To set up new items in our system, the item spec data must be published via GDSN. Please work with a GDSN certified data pool provider to upload item data and publish the items. If you are not already signed up with a data pool, here is a list of certified data pools.
EDI is the fastest, most efficient way to communicate Purchase Orders, Purchase Order Confirmations, Advance Ship Notifications, Invoices, Pricing and Sales Reporting. There are two options to set up EDI with Dot Foods: EDI in-house or outsource EDI needs to an EDI 3rd party provider.
