EDI and Its Relation With Supply Chain

by Michael Kotendzhi | Logistics

The technology transitions in the logistics and transportation industry have been an intricate process but necessary in the past two decades. In the preceding time, large quantities of data are retrieved and input manually each transaction. Not only it is time-consuming, but it is also prone to imminent errors and delays. Henceforth, EDI is brought into the supply chain industry and continuously proven its worthiness to polish the operation.

EDI transmits information from the sender into digital data and exports the data to the receivers even though the two parties’ software is not compatible. EDI usually is provided by an special provider that acts as the middle agent in turn of accurate interpretation. The service is ideal when one business is sending data to different receivers with a multitude of the document.

This feature is still underutilized between the logistics partner and the retail businesses. Especially in Vancouver, British Columbia, it appears there are no reputable suppliers in the region that can integrate EDI to the logistics and transportation industry to the storefronts. When can we see it happening? In an incalculable future.
