hello,

Electronic data interchange (EDI) is an electronic communication system that provides standards for exchanging data via any electronic means. By adhering to the same standard, two different companies, even in two different countries, can electronically exchange documents (such as purchase orders, invoices, shipping notices, and many others). EDI has existed for more than 30 years, and there are many EDI standards (including X12, EDIFACT, ODETTE, etc.), some of which address the needs of specific industries or regions. It also refers specifically to a family of standards.

Hello,

EDI is an Electronic Data Interchange.. EDI comprises of many types of “messages” which when transmitted between two parties is designed to substitute other forms of data transfer.
This EDI messaging is also used to send the data to Customs (Manifest, Bill of Entry), Port (Container Stowage planning, Cargo Dues, Load/Discharge list, Container moves), Principals (Load/Discharge list, Container moves, Bookings).
Usually there are software that will help to convert data into an EDI format and this is then sent by email to the recipient same as a normal machine.. At the other end, there are systems that can automatically receive these msgs and transfer them back into data in their system.

Thanks,
Pavithra

hiiii

 Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in a standard electronic format between business partners.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) enables organisations to send and receive
standardised business communications more quickly, flexibly, cheaply and with
greater security and accuracy than is possible with conventional postal services. It
is not, however, merely another telecommunications advance, but rather provides a
means by which organisations can introduce seamless inter-connection within and
across organisational boundaries

Thanks

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the electronic interchange of business information using a standardized format; a process which allows one company to send information to another company electronically rather than with paper. Business entities conducting business electronically are called trading partners.
