What is EDI and What are the Benefits?
For most trucking companies, EDI is well understood, however, if you’re a trucking company that still handles their shipments and logistics with paper, you may not be familiar with the term. EDI or Electronic Data Interchange is a data exchange protocol that eliminates the need for the traditional paper documents that would need to be sent to the receiver and manually entered into their system. In short, document transfer exchange. We encourage anyone who is still working with paper logistics to come to chat with us about how much time and money you could save when switching over to Tracx TMS.
EDI is fantastic for transferring documents to the receivers system. With EDI, the sender’s operating software, Tracx TMS, for example, would send the data to the receiver’s software and import it so that it transfers properly over to the system. The use of EDI allows more transparency, and near real-time communication between your trucking business and your customer. This eliminates a ton of waiting time. EDI can transfer documents like load tender, status updates, invoices, and bills of lading.
What are the costs of EDI?
Typically, the average cost of an EDI transaction is around $3.00. Now, you may think, “well, that doesn’t sound too bad?” however, the number of transactions you need for each customer, each load, and invoicing, can add up very quickly! For many trucking dispatch software, you would have to pay a hefty subscription fee to a third-party provider, PLUS, you would have to pay for the transactions. For many trading partners, you could see between 2000 – 5000 transactions per year. When you consider the costs, that could be around $15,000 in transaction costs that don’t even cover the subscription fee as well.
