EDI Services

EDI is critical to any terminal operation. Without it, how would you receive bookings from customers and container releases from Customs? How would you receive inbound manifests or send outbound vessel stow plans to shipping lines? If EDI goes down, it can bring your business to a halt.

Nonetheless, most terminals don’t have the dedicated resources to ensure EDI runs perfectly all of the time. That’s where Tideworks’ EDI Porter can help. This hosted service includes EDI program management, translation, visibility tools, and more – at a fraction of the cost of processing EDI yourself.

Advantages of Tideworks’ EDI Porter:

  • Quick startup
  • Low monthly fee
  • Tools for you to track EDI activity
  • Scalable as your business grows
  • Reliable and accurate
