Systems do not exist in isolation — the ability to communicate with other systems is key to enabling the product supply chain.
Key for communication to corporate back-end systems and ERPs, EDI provides a flexible mechanism to exchange inbound, order, inventory, activity, and ASN detailed shipment with tracking information using standards such as ANSI X12 and EDIFACT or flexible formats such as CSV or XML. Protocols such as AS2, AS3, and secure FTP are supported. Communication with carriers or a transportation management system is also available for carrier load tendering and scheduling.
Support for E-Commerce platforms such as Shopify, Amazon, and Magento enable key business links to be set up in hours.
Links to parcel carriers such as FedEx, UPS, USPS, and DHL, provide shipment and rate flexibility along with management of hazardous materials and international shipments.
