EDI has become a high demand for all freight forwarding and logistics customers. While once freight forwarders relied on telephones, paperwork and contract hard copies, they are now evolving into the digital space, which makes 24/7 communication and visibility a hallmark of the industry. Effective Data can help your business decide the right solution to ensure real-time freight tracking. 

Our products and services make it easy and affordable to collaborate with business associates, transfer data, and integrate internal business processes.

Trucking and freight forwarders need simple, automated systems to stay competitive and financially viable. Providing freight visibility that integrates with client systems improves internal process efficiency, resulting in higher profit margins. 

EDI eliminates routine high volume communications automating, for example, a dispatcher from having to manually key information into the dispatch operational and billing system. Replacing printing and mailing an invoice with DI automation, companies not only reduce costly billing but expedite their payment cycle.

Transportation companies who are EDI compliant can communicate seamlessly and electronically with all parties in the supply chain process.  Effective Data can help get you to achieve these goals!
