Upcoming changes of PO numbers in Global Purchasing System
Due to number range limitations in the Volvo Group Global Purchasing System (GPS), the data format for the current Purchase Order Number will change.
The new data format will be set automatically for new material orders and is planned to be released in November 2017.
Current Volvo Group defined EDI specifications will still be valid, but please make sure your internal IT systems can handle the upcoming data format changes.
