Helping you to automate and simplify your supply chain data.
Supply chain efficiency through e-connectivity
Supply chain efficiency is a key differentiator in most industries. While speed and accuracy are the main drivers, the ability to automate and exchange vital business data as it happens can dramatically improve supply chain performance.
Speed up and automate your business processes
With Maersk’s Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solutions, you will have greater control and visibility of your supply chain events. EDI is a means of communication allowing businesses to connect in a more cost-efficient way while improving transaction accuracy and speed. It standardises and simplifies supplier interactions by integrating a multitude of systems in today’s highly digitised world of business. EDI links our systems to yours, empowering you to take control of your shipments with confidence using your own applications and user interfaces.
This enables a faster and more efficient transfer of information between you and Maersk throughout numerous points of the supply chain. As a result, you can respond to changing demands more effectively, facilitating the acceleration and automation of your business.
- Fast and accurate
- Improves productivity
- Reduces administration costs
Manage your B2B data seamlessly
EDI Solutions can help automatically organise and streamline the most time-consuming parts of your workday. By efficiently integrating all the B2B data across your supply chain network and making it accessible in seconds, you benefit from improved connectivity and visibility, all within your own internal systems.
We offer a number of Key EDI messages that provide continuous value when integrated:
