What is EDI?

Electronic Data Interchange, or EDI, is the electronic exchange of data between two or more parties. EDI helps businesses bridge the data gap between various trading partners in the supply chain to communicate product and shipment information accurately and quickly. As businesses continue to outsource their logistics services, 3PLs have become synonymous with Supply Chain. As such, they have become increasingly responsible for being “technologically capable”, including their ability to handle Direct EDI with the various trading partners in the supply chain.

Why Use

EDI allows warehouse to be more automated with their flow of data which will save time for the end-user and improves the quality of data. In addition, becoming EDI capable allows businesses to expand their service offering into new industries, such as retail distribution, by offering retail EDI compliance or other common EDI standards.
