Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) continues to prove its business value in the logistics landscape by lowering costs, improving speed, accuracy, and business efficiency. From Direct (point to point) EDI, web and mobile EDI to EDI software, the greatest EDI benefits often come at the strategic business level. EDI enables real-time visibility into transaction status which in turn enables faster decision-making, along with improved responsiveness to changing customer and market demands. This allows businesses to adopt a demand-driven business model rather than a supply-driven one.
One of the biggest challenges in the logistics industry is having thousands of carriers in which only the largest are using EDI. Logistics companies have long preferred smaller carriers because of their flexibility, but getting these carriers to implement an EDI solution can be a difficult proposition. Companies are finding it essential to address these challenges by providing the technology and expertise required to move forward in a more proficient manner. Each of their solutions have to be designed to simplify the implementation process and make it more cost effective for both the logistics company and the carrier.
