How B2BGateway works with Third Party Logistics (3PL) companies

B2BGateway is a world-class EDI solutions provider who can help promote your 3PL business. Many of the clients who come to us with EDI requirements that are in the growth phase of their business are not yet large enough to utilize their own warehouse; that’s where our mutual clients would benefit from the use of a 3PL company to help them manage their warehousing and shipping needs.

We can cater to your 3PL’s needs by delivering warehouse shipping orders and integrating directly with the 3PL’s WMS. We support all EDI documents including the most common 3PL 200 and 900 series as well as all EDI global formats and communication methods.

Our system will help you to receive the return shipping advice and import into our client’s ERP, often in the form of an item fulfillment record.

We’ll also create the Advanced Ship Notice (ASN) from your 3PL’s shipping notice and pass it onto your trading partners. There is literally no EDI document we cannot work with when integrating with your 3PL business.
