Electronic Data Interchange (EDI):
Exchange of business documents by electronic means

The Liebherr Group pursues the aim of processing important business transactions with suppliers according to the industrial standard regarding the exchange of business documents by electronic means, otherwise known as "Electronic Data Interchange" (EDI). In doing so, a distinction is made between the classic OFTP protocol-based EDI and an internet market place-based WEB-EDI.

Technically, all Liebherr sites with production facilities have the means of sending EDI messages for the procurement process as well as editing received EDI messages where agreed.
