EDI for Logistics Operators: A Solution Adapted to Global Trade

05/10/2017

EDI for Logistics Operators

In countries where economically unstable conditions exist, exports are a way of escape and opportunity for many companies that manage to maintain active businesses and sometimes even allow them to grow. However, in order to export goods it is sometimes necessary to adapt to and prepare necessary logistical and communication flows. For companies that export large volumes of products, the most important challenges to adapt to are those posed by the international market.

Participating in logistics at the international level requires more complex processes, specialized software, facilities and transportation. It is difficult for companies to manage all of these processes. That’s why they have the support of a logistics operator. The logistics operator is in charge of designing and implementing the processes of one or various stages of the supply chain.

One of the challenges logistics operators face is speeding up the exchange of information among supply chain actors. For this reason, EDI has become a standardized and sectorial solution, which allows companies to have automated and universal systems for exchanging information. Logistics operators that must send and receive information instantly with a multitude of collaborators from all over the world find EDI to be a great ally that allows them to face any technological barrier, and it also makes companies more competitive.

How to adapt to EDI flows globally?

It should be noted that EDI’s expansion varies from region to region. In the United States and Europe, it is widespread and in continuous demand while in regions like Latin America and Asia, its use is growing little by little since large multinationals are starting to demand it from their suppliers.

Logistics operators must have an EDI service provider capable of adapting to any requirement and need on a global level.

EDICOM’s platform meets these four requirements that guarantee interoperability with any global partner:

  • Multi-standard solution. In the United States, the main standard is X12 and in Europe it’s EDIFACT. However, some standards are specific to some sectors such as ODETTE for the automotive sector. It is important that the platform have a mapping module capable of transforming any structure to the standard language required by the partner.
  • Data integration. EDICOM’s solution integrates with the ERP or internal management system of the company. In this way it becomes possible to maintain internal work processes.
  • Secure connectivity. Commercial communications contain confidential information, and it’s important to ensure that this information reaches the recipient safely. That’s why it’s convenient to use a value added communication network that guarantees security and confidentiality.
  • Global trade opens the door to increasing business with multiple countries and regions. Our solution will adapt to the requirements of any region, not only at the EDI level but also through other value added B2B solutions such as electronic invoicing platforms.

EDI solutions designed by EDICOM, the global leader in electronic data interchange, guarantee connectivity with any partner or business, regardless of the standard utilized or communication process used. To find out more about them, consult our team of experts through the contact form.
