Benefits of EDI with NYK Line
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the interchange of structured data by electronic means between computer systems according to agreed message standards. In other words, EDI facilitates business transactions between customers and trading partners electronically. NYK Line has adopted EDI for the same reasons it has embraced much of today's modern technology: to improve efficiency, data security as well as customer responsiveness and service.
These message standards were defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI X12 standards) and international bodies such as the United Nations (EDIFACT standards).

Why Use EDI?
  • Closer business relationships are formed and enhanced customer service is possible.
  • Facilitates better data sharing.
  • Reduces cost and increase efficiency by improving data flow and error reduction.
  • Environmentally friendly: minimized paper use and storage.
  • Improves the security of business transactions.
  • Improves accuracy and reduces the need for re-keying of data.
  • Expedites the documentation process for import, export and customs declaration.
  • Facilitates information management between customers and trading partners.
