Manufacturing Suppliers

Manufacturing Suppliers

The supply chain in manufacturing is heavily influenced by the just-in-time delivery demands of manufacturers. Suppliers need EDI to transact business in a timely manner with manufacturers not only located in North America, but also their subsidiaries in Europe and Asia.

EDI in manufacturing is complex and that’s where Integral Group can help. As a supplier you will receive an EDI 830 planning schedule for custom manufactured products and an 850 for off-the-shelf products . Through the 830 your customer is sharing their manufacturing schedule and you are expected to ship your products to their plant just-in-time for manufacturing. An EDI 856 is the most important document as it is your reply to an 830 or 850 when goods are ready to ship. It notifies the manufacturer that your products are in transit and when to expect delivery.

We work with many suppliers like yours across North America. Our Order Management service manages the order life cycle and ensures you are meeting manufacturers' stringent requirements.

Are you using two or more EDI service providers? It costs you money and requires extra training, time and effort to keep up. You might think you have no choice – but you really do.

Even though some retailers may endorse a particular EDI service provider, Avalon connects to those very same retailers every day. See our list of retailer connections.

If you're using a retailer portal like WalMart Retail Link or Amazon Vendor Central, you may not know they give you the option to bypass their portal and use Avalon instead – all you have to do is ask.
