    CSV (DENV format) 
  2. Phase 2: Receiving Shipping Notifications
    (Dispatch Advices)
    Messages: DESADV (EDIFACT format)
    CSV (DENV format) 
  3. Phase 3: Use of Odette transport labels for internal reception process

WEB-EDI

WEB-EDI is an ‘additional’ method to the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) method that is used in material procurement. 

Web-EDI is a cost-saving way for suppliers to enter into competition in the supplier market. Internet technology makes it possible for suppliers to access information in a customer’s system and to enter shipping notifications, without time delay.

However, this web-application will not completely replace the current electronic exchange of EDI.

WEB EDI features

  • View all delivery schedules and releases

  • Download and print all releases
  • Open Due List
  • Create an Advanced Shipping Notification with packing information
