Best Practices for EDI Communication with Freight Forwarders
Summary: We are investigating the opportunity to communicate with Freight Forwarders via EDI and looking for other companies who are already doing this to identify starting points, best practices and lessons learned.
Some of the initial questions include:
Which EDI message types ae being used (300 series, or are you leveraging standard transportation messages ie. 204, 990 etc)?
Which XML Element is being used for each message (TenderOffer, TenderResponse, etc)?
Are the EDI messages triggered to/from shipments or trade transactions?
