EDI specialists for logistics

The growing momentum of outsourcing services associated with the transport, storage and handling of goods has facilitated the adoption of models for electronic information exchange standards-based on EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) and communication protocols tailored to the specific exchange of documents between companies (Value Added Network, AS2, Web Services, etc.)..

The integration of EDI in logistics operators requires an additional effort for such firms because their information-sharing systems have to integrate their processes in addition to those of their customers, such as the final recipients of goods, or even the customs offices of distinct countries of origin and destination.

This calls for complex B2B ecommerce models, in which the associated processes of integration and supply chain automation, are a challenge to the companies ultimately responsible for processing, storage and delivery of products to the point of sale.
