In digitizing our processes, EDI connections to our customers and suppliers are a key step. They enable us to electronically exchange standardized business data, such as orders, invoices, and shipping notices. This arrangement reduces the likelihood of data processing errors while increasing the processing speeds.

We are already digitally connected to numerous business partners worldwide via EDI. Recently, we set up a comprehensive EDI connection to Tata Steel, Europe’s second largest steel producer.

And we are already planning the next step. Specifically, upcoming customer and supplier portals will soon replace certain EDI connections.
