Katoen Natie and its partner, Intergamma, have recently made an innovative launch in e-commerce logistics. Their collaboration introduces the revolutionary "AutoStore", recognized as the world's fastest and most reliable order processing system per square meter, aimed at enhancing the delivery experience for Intergamma's customers. The orders destined for the AutoStore automation are integrated through an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system facilitated by Montova, between Katoen Natie’s Warehouse Management System and Intergamma’s Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP).

What is EDI

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is an electronic exchange of business documents and data in a standardized format between business partners. EDI is crucial in modern e-commerce and logistics operations due to its efficiency, accuracy, and lower operational cost.

*Within the context of EDI, business documents and data include items like purchase orders, invoices, shipping notices, and other transaction-related information.
