EDI 861 is used to confirm/accept that the goods have been received by Warehouse or Storage location. This message is sent to the Shipper. This message is also termed as Receiving Advice/Acceptance Certificate.

EDI 944 is the Warehouse Stock transfer Receipt Advice which is used by remote warehouses/3PL's to confirm receipt of shipments.

Benefits of EDI 944: Useful for planning Replenishment shipments, stock overview across warehouses, automation as it has dependency on RF devices.

Note: Internal segments are different for above EDI messages.
