An Overview of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Electronic Data Interchange is the general term for a variety of protocols and standards describing how trading partners across various commercial and industrial sectors transact by exchanging electronic business documents.

Examples of business documents in the supply chain sector include purchase orders, invoices, shipping notifications, and inventory reports.

EDI protocols and standards describe, among other things, the structure of exchanged documents, the communications and security protocols used to exchange documents, and how trading partners identify each other.
