Electronic Data Interchange, otherwise known as EDI, is a critical necessity for 3PLs and private warehouses to communicate with their customers, partners and/or retailers. 3PL Central supports a variety of common EDI file protocols and connection methods and can help support auxiliary needs through partners including retailer UCC-128 labels, retailer 856 shipment notifications and EDI 810 communication with retailers.
While most EDI documents use specific computer record formats that are based on widely accepted standards, each company will use the flexibility allowed by the standards in a unique way that fits their business. Further, 3PL Central’s integration partners have unique EDI requirements and those EDI documents must be exchanged with the partners in exactly the format they specify.
