EDI Integration is an ideal solution for streamlining your operations and ensuring that we have your freight information as soon as it’s available. All that's required is that we are sent the information in a structured file format via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
Electronic Data Interchange or EDI for short is the exchange of data in an electronic format between our customers and us. Moving to an electronic data exchange can benefit both Hi-Trans Express and our customer's businesses as it will help by reducing costs, increasing processing speed and reducing data errors
The Benefits Of Doing An EDI Integration:
Details received is correct - e.g number of items, description, address detail, size and weight are entered correctly decreasing the likelihood of there being any errors
Pickup and delivery planning starts as soon as the information comes in, ensuring we get your customer's freight picked up and delivered on time
Automatic processes - Information sent via the EDI will be used to streamline the entire freight movement. e.g. booking creation through to connote delivery
EDI Import Options
We have two EDI integration methods available to our customers.
1. Via Our Online System
Customers can manually create consignments and bookings online
All information such as sender and receiver details are saved for quick data entry for future consignments
Once your customer has finished creating a consignment they can instantly create a booking
All freight that is labelled will be trackable via our track and trace system
2. EDI Direct Into Our System
This option does not require our customer to use the Hi-Trans Online system, instead, our customer's system is able to directly import the consignment data into our Jaix Freight system.
Keep in mind customers are still required to print and provide all documentation to accompany their freight
Correct Dangerous Goods documentation if required.
We are able now able to offer our customers a new feature that allows us to export live data to our customers via FTP or Email. This feature allows our customers to get the latest information about the whereabouts of their freight right from their own third-party system or via an email.
