Integrating a standardised data format like Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) into your existing infrastructure means you'll reduce business transaction costs, spend less time tracking down the files you need and you can spend more time using that information to grow your business.
By using an industry standard (ANSI X12) data format, UPS gives you maximum compatibility with established systems, and data security around your information transfers. You'll receive support for batch processing of package-level detail uploads, billing information and package tracking.
EDI is the direct application-to-application transmission of business documents such as:
- Invoice - Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice Transaction Set (210)
- Package Status - Motor Carrier Package Status Transaction Set (240)
- Shipping Manifest - Motor Carrier Collection Manifest Transaction Set (215)
What EDI Does for You
When you incorporate UPS billing information into your existing EDI infrastructure, you give yourself assurance that tracking results, electronic funds transfers and other key data are transferred smoothly throughout your enterprise. All UPS domestic and export services are supported.
In addition to delivering process improvements for your company, EDI helps the environment by reducing overall paper consumption.
