Allowing the exchange of all business documents, Comarch EDI connects companies with their trading and logistics partners worldwide and is fully compliant with the latest local and global standards. Thanks to the implementation of such solutions as traceability and machine learning technology, it also enables advanced supply chain processes automation, so you can be sure they are always optimized.

The paperless logic of logistics

As transport and logistics is an industry where exchanging documents and having instant access to reliable data is necessary on a daily basis, it serves as the best example of improvements made with the use of EDI. In shipments to customers, paperless deliveries are already implemented and work seamlessly. EDI enables B2B deliveries paperless too, while also making this fast, easy, and more reliable. Using EDI in the delivery process allows you to speed up the unloading time on-premises. What’s more, it also facilitates the work of dispatchers and accelerates the delivery process – all by itself. With EDI, you can increase productivity not only in deliveries, but also in transport planning and execution, or even warehousing. Compared to traditional, paper-based methods, using EDI can increase the accuracy of related documentation for about 99 per cent.

As part of EDI-integrated solutions for logistics, Comarch offers a mobile app for proof of delivery (POD), thereby enabling rapid receipt of information about delivery status. It creates value by reducing errors and increasing the efficiency of supply chain operations. These result in improved performance of transport and operation teams, overall productivity boost, cost reduction, and customer experience improvement.
