GXS AIAG Beijing Presentation 2012


Published on

This presentation was given by Mark Morley at AIAG’s conference in Beijing in October 2012. The presentation discusses a case study looking at how a joint venture operation based in China needed to send EDI documents to its trading partner in EMEA. The joint venture was made up from a partnership between a Chinese OEM, an EMEA OEM and their third party logistics provider. The Chinese OEM had no experience or knowledge of how to trade with a European partner and GXS Managed Services was deployed to connect the trading partners together. Updated April 2013
