If each Alternating Shipping address of an EDI Customer requires a different Cross Reference No, you will need to set up a sell-to Account for each Alternating Shipping address. The new sell-to account should have one Alternate Shipping address where you can define EDI Shipping Id.
If you prefer to consolidate AR under one billing account, you can create another account with billing address. Then, populate it to the Alternate Billing field on the sell-to accounts.
