Value Added Network (VAN) services offered at discounted rates.

Digital Movers, a premier provider of hosted electronic commerce services, announced a cost-cutting Electronic Commerce Affinity Program that allows transportation, carriers and logistics companies to obtain Value Added Network (VAN) services at discounted rates. A Value Added Network or VAN is a hosted store and forward mailbox service that facilitates the secure and auditable sharing of information (such as purchase orders, invoices, shipment status, etc.) electronically between companies to support Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

“Since the arrival of the Internet, people have been predicting the end of the dependency upon Value Added Networks to accommodate EDI. However, years later many companies still rely upon VANs when building intra-company communication networks and supply chain solutions,” said Ken Konikowski, president, Digital Movers. “Digital Movers is one of the largest resellers of public, tier one Value Added Network (VAN) Services. We commit to large volumes of VAN services to obtain the lowest possible rates and then pass along these savings to our customers and alliance partners. We are extremely pleased to offer this cost saving program specifically to transportation and logistics companies that are looking to reduce their operating expenses.”

“Increasingly, transportation companies are being requested by their customers to provide timely, electronic information on shipments, etc.,” said Steve Thompson, Director of IT, TCW, Inc. “The Digital Movers’ Electronic Commerce Affinity Program enabled us to reduce our operating expenses by 40%. Additionally, the migration to the new Value Added Network account was painless and quick.”

Additionally, Digital Movers announced that it is offering its FAX2EDI conversion service to transportation and logistics companies to reduce or eliminate manual data entry for Bills of Lading and Freight Invoices.
