Abstract:

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service - Indianapolis Center DFAS-IN is preparing to receive invoice information electronically from freight carriers. The success of DFAS-INs new transportation payment system depends on the availability of EDI-capable freight carriers to serve as its trading partners. In this report, we propose a three-step plan for soliciting freight carrier trading partners for DFAS-IN. First we have prepared promotional and instructional materials and recommend their widespread distribution throughout industry second, we suggest a series of freight carrier workshops and third, we propose a process of selectivity targeting carriers that represent large shipment volumes.
