Transport Types – your way

Which method of transport do you prefer when exchanging business documents? AS2, VAN, SFTP, API or something else? Link gives you – and your trading partners – the freedom to choose.

Back in the old days, it was easy to decide a method of transport for your EDI documents when exchanging business documents with your trading partners. The answer would almost always be the same: “through a VAN”, because there was no internet, which meant that everyone was connected to each other through a VAN (Value Added Network) partner.

But that was then, and this is now.

Today, you have many more possibilities. Besides a VAN, you can choose between:

  • AS2
  • AS4
  • FTP
  • SFTP
  • API
  • Email
  • … and many more

With Link as your EDI management platform, you have the freedom to choose how you want to exchange documents. Simply choose your preferred transfer method (this is referred to as “transport type” in Link).

Choose a transport type easily

Link lets you choose the right transport type in no time. Just click on “Locations” when you set up your trading partner and choose the transport type from the dropdown menu that you and your trading partner have agreed on. Simple.
