EDI for Retail
The most demanding supply chain in the world is the web of sellers, suppliers, distributors, and transporters serving the retail industry. The volume of products and the speed at which products move from production to consumer is unmatched.
Retailer sellers face a competitive marketplace of easy online price discovery and multiple options for delivery. Products and their speedy movement in the supply chain have to have a very low level of defects. The focus on quality and speed includes the information flow between businesses. EDI is the electronic format of choice for the exchange of business documents moving through the retail EDI supply chain.
