Current Projects of WG ICT and EDI
VDA 4994 - Global Transport Label
Goal: to develop a harmonised profile for using the Global Transport Label (GTL) in the German automotive industry as replacement for the labels according to VDA 4902, since the old label specification does not meet the requirements of modern logistics concepts anymore. It is intended to use the new label in the national and international environment.
The project group focuses on delivery instruction and JIT call-pff processes, JIS processes are out of scope.
The recommendation is based on the GTL specification developed and maintained jointly by Odette (Europe), AIAG (North America) and JAMA/JAPIA (Japan) in the Joint Automotive Industry Forum (JAIF)
VDA 4933 - Ready for Shipment Advice
Update and maintenance of the VDA recommendation used in the automotive industry between supplier, customer and forwarder to advice goods ready for shipment. The recommendation includes a process description and the interface format for data exchange.
One specific aim of the project is to enable automated data exchange in addition to the widely used oprtal applications, which usually require manual data input.
