The message is used by a customer to confirm receipt of goods to a supplier. The message is usually a response to a DESADV message and is related to a single supplier dispatch location and a single place of delivery.
Using this report, a customer informs a supplier about the actual received goods and their amount. This allows a supplier to operationally manage possible inconsistencies in delivery before issuing an invoice and thus minimize usage of logistical credit notes. Customers also benefit from an electronic cross-checking of the receipt against the invoice, which is processed automatically in case of matching information.
