Materiel: Supplier Requirements (ASN)

  • All Bell Helicopter suppliers are required to have the ability to transmit and receive, as the case may be, ASN's, material releases and other such information, as Bell Helicopter may deem appropriate.
  • The supply partner shall transmit an accurate and timely ASN. Each ASN requires the specific time and date of shipment clearly noted.
  • Transmit ASN immediately upon carrier departure.
  • Report the actual truck departure time on ASN.
  • Report the correct time zone qualifier on ASN.
  • Arrange for a backup ASN system. The backup system can either be an entirely separate System within the supplier's own company or through a service bureau.
  • Pre-assigned ASNs are prohibited.
