Fax2EDI

Is Fax2EDI the right EDI solution for you to translate your business documents into EDI transactions?

In this case, EDI Gateway offers you our Fax2EDI option!

With this option, your existing internal processes do not need to change. You will continue to receive your retailer’s 850 EDI Purchase Orders through Fax and/or e-mail (your choice!) and, in turn, you will send us the corresponding 810 EDI invoice or 856 EDI ASN, for EDI processing. Our internal programs and systems are designed to ensure that all outgoing data and EDI transactions are compliant with your retailers’ EDI requirements and business rules! By outsourcing your EDI transactions to EDI Gateway’s knowledgeable and trained EDI specialists, you are able to focus on your internal operations and priorities.

UCC-128/MH10 shipping labels

Barcoding (UCC/EAN) is designed to provide concise information about the label and the box contents in order to link it to EDI transactions such as 856 EDI ASN (Advance Ship Notice). Just like each retailer has different requirements for its EDI transactions, so do the UCC128/MH10 labels templates. EDI Gateway’s software is capable of generating UCC128/MH10 Labels that are compliant to each retailer’s specific requirements and template specs. The UCC-128/MH-10 labels (GS1-128) are automatically generated through our ASN software application based on your packing rules, allowing you to save time when creating your 856 EDI ASNs. Tested according to GS1 guidelines for barcode symbols as well as the retailers’ specific EDI requirements, EDI Gateway ensures a 100 % compliance.

EDI Gateway’s UCC-128/MH-10 shipping label options include: Regardless of the volume of UCC-128/MH10 labels you require for a specific order, EDI Gateway will print your labels for you when you need them!

  • We offer blank laser labels for in-house printing at competitive prices
  • All our software and desk top applications allow you to manage, generate and print your UCC-128/MH10 labels at your own convenience!
