The choreography of business documents among numerous parties in the Transportation and Logistics industry is complex and associated with multiple sources and receiving systems.
Many Trading Partners interact in the Transportation and Logistics world including expeditors, shippers, freight forwarders, 3PL, 4PL, warehouse managers and customers. They exchange a large variety of business, logistics and custom documents. Furthermore, this industry is multimodal by nature, involving road, rail, sea and air transportation, leveraging numerous standards, protocols (including EDI Edifact/ X12), and back-end systems to enable B2B document exchanges.
