Royal 4 EDI for the 3PL Industry

Many of today’s major retail chains now require their suppliers to communicate with them via Electronic Data Interchange

EDI was developed in order to provide manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers (aka trading partners) with a standard computer format for exchanging common business information such as orders and inventories. The most common barrier to implementation of EDI continues to be the inability of a company to find a partner with the ability to offer EDI. Royal 4 can make this process a reality for your business.
