Secure, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is a computer-to-computer exchange of information. This process is generally done with business-to-business applications to transfer files and information securely. ODW Logistics, Inc. (ODW) EDI transactions are based on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) ASC X12 standards.

EDI is often used to automate routine information processing with minimal manual intervention. EDI is based on high volume computer to computer exchange. We use this to help reduce operating costs, increases accuracy, and speeds processing of business data.

It can be used to exchange items such as:

  • purchase orders
  • invoices
  • shipping notices
  • and many other standardized business transactions

If your business requires integration with ODW or is a customer of ODW, and has EDI capabilities, you may want to consider an EDI connection.

ODW Logistics has the capability to connect to our customers and trading partners in a wide variety of methods such as AS2, SFTP, FTP and XML. Although each implementation can be unique we have templates in place to support the following transaction types to allow for quick deployment of standard X.12 Transactions.
