EDI for Transportation & Trucking
Through several decades of evolution, many of the complexities and challenges inherent in the transportation and trucking industry have led to the extremely efficient EDI systems that are in place today.
The replacement of paper documents with electronic documents was one of the most significant advances in logistics and transportation technology. Companies now rely on standardized electronic formats rather than having to manage different manual systems for load requests, load request responses, status updates, and invoices.
EDI has become increasingly popular in the trucking & transportation industry because it helps communication flow between all parties in the supply chain process. CovalentWorks provides an EDI solution that eliminates the need for manual entry of information which saves dispatcher’s time and money.
