To ensure that your shipping order data is transmitted electronically to your service provider at the same time as the pickup is completed, initially configure the EDI connection.
- The most commonly used transfer protocols or EDI send modes are FTP or SFTP. We will therefore explain the procedure for configuring an SFTP connection below.
- We recommend setting up a project with AEB to configure new carriers. As a rule, AEB will initially create new carriers for you, which you can then configure with the I_CLIENTADMIN role. If you wish to create new carriers on your own in close consultation with AEB, you need the role I_CAI_SETUPCARRIERS. You can coordinate the process by submitting a request through the AEB Help Center.
Proceed as follows to configure an EDI connection for SFTP:
- You must have your company-specific access data, the target server URL, the target server port, and the target directory for the EDI connection. You will receive these directly from your service provider, not from AEB.
- The preconfigured connections are already enabled in the firewall for all Carrier Connect systems with the AEB Cloud operating model.
