As a customer, you can use EDI for a range of different information exchange tasks with us. The messages we support are described below.
Specifications for each message are in DB Schenker's Recommendations for Product Labeling and Information Transfer (AGI) that you can gain access to by submitting an request.
Through this message, you can schedule ion of goods and packages for further transport. This is considered a reservation of space in our transport resources. The booking may contain preliminary information about weight, volume, number of packages, etc.
Booking confirmation (IFTMBC)
This message is a confirmation that DB Schenker has received your booking.
Transport instruction (IFTMIN)
The transport instruction is the definitive transport order and contains all information necessary to facilitate land transport. This information also allow you to, for example, search for your shipment and follow up on your transport invoice.
Transport status (IFTSTA)
The message means that you can continually get the status of your shipments automatically each time a new event occurs instead of you having to check it manually.
With the message INVOIC you get a completely specified e-invoice as often as you receive paper invoices. The differences is that you get e-invoice one day earlier since you eliminate the mail service. Since the e-invoice contains all information that is needed to use this for payment, you can shut off your ordinary paper invoice and in that way do something good for the environment.
