Achieve supply chain efficiencies
in a high-risk sector
First of all, the automotive industry is incredibly complex, with many different players involved in the production and delivery of vehicles and parts. From manufacturers and suppliers to logistics providers and dealerships, there are a lot of moving parts involved in getting a car from the factory to the consumer.
The automotive world has changed over recent years; profit margins are shrinking resulting in the drive for greater efficiency. The automotive industry is placing precedence on streamlining processes and reducing costs. Utilising EDI integration can help to simplify and streamline these processes by providing a standardised way for companies to exchange information and documents.Businesses can benefit from a future-proof solution to their supply chain management and reduce the risk of penalties.
Support your entire supply chain management with EDI
When an automotive manufacturer needs to order parts or components from a supplier, they can use EDI to transmit the purchase order electronically. The supplier can then use EDI to confirm the order and send an advanced shipping notice (ASN) when the parts are shipped.
EDI can be used to exchange inventory data between trading partners. For example, a supplier can use EDI to provide a real-time inventory update to an automotive manufacturer, allowing them to better manage their production schedule.
EDI can be used to track the movement of goods between trading partners. A logistics provider, or 3PL can use EDI to provide shipment status updates to an automotive manufacturer, helping them to better manage their supply chain.
