New Supplier Feature in the Penn Marketplace

Penn Marketplace Update

November 16th, 2020

Starting Monday, November 16th, Penn Procurement Services is pleased to introduce a new supplier feature in the Penn Marketplace, Advanced Shipment Notifications (ASN).  For those suppliers with this feature enabled, end users will have the ability to view item shipment information, such as shipment status, carrier and track number.  Please note not every supplier has ASN capability, but Procurement Services is continually monitoring for new ways to make procurement easier.
