CVS is currently doing an ASN certification with our legacy suppliers, those suppliers who were doing business with CVS prior to February, 2018.   In the next coming weeks, you will be contacted by our 3rd partner ASN certification partner, CoEnterprise, to complete ASN compliance. 

New suppliers; that is, suppliers doing business with CVS after February 1, 2018, are not required to submit an ASN at this time.   We will be monitoring your receipts into the DC.  If you meet our thresholds, you will be contacted to begin sending an ASN. 

Please note that all certified ASNs are sent to our 3rd party Logistics partner, Descartes.   The required ISA ID is ZZ/CVS856ASN.  You must be certified before sending ASNs to this ID.
