The EDI system allows companies running CFM to transmit electronic communications to and from their customers. The EDI capabilities within the CFM system are as follows:
 Alert Messages
EDI alerts are messages sent from the forwarder and, when accepted, will populate as shipments in the dispatch screen. Messages can also be ignored (which will exclude the shipment from entry, but send no return message), or rejected (which will send a reject message back to the forwarder). EDI points are only charged if the alert is accepted.
 Invoice Messages
EDI invoices are messages sent containing all shipments on an invoice. An EDI message will send once an invoice is posted.
 Status Messages
Status messages contain updated shipment information and are the most commonly used EDI service. If a forwarder does not have a direct EDI link, status messages can be sent to the cds-connect website for them to view. While some forwarders allow additional statuses to be manually sent, the automatically transmitted messages for CFM are:
– Dispatched (PU)
– Recovered (PU)
– On Hand (DEL)
– OFD (DEL)
– POD (DEL)
When using the CFM Imaging product, customers setup with EDI status messages to cds-connect can also be configured to send backup paperwork to the site. In addition, certain forwarders accept direct EDI imaging. EDI services are included with the CFM Imaging software and no units are charged to transmit messages.
