Advantages of Electronic Data Interchange Flow Between Sunland Customers & Sunland
With EDI connectivity, you can benefit from a more efficient process and avoid additional costs.
EDI provides notifications of inbound receipts to the warehouse and then notifies the customer of outbound shipments leaving the warehouse. One of the largest advantages to EDI communications is increased accuracy through the reduction manually inputting receipts/ shipments.
EDI Basic Steps:
- The customer creates their orders via their WMS or ERP software and then sends that electronically to Sunland
- Sunland grabs the file, and then imports it into our WMS system, which in-turn creates the inbound receipt (eliminating opportunity for human error)
- The order is picked and shipped
- Once the order is shipped, Sunland sends the shipment notification back to the customer, electronically, and inventories are updated automatically
Sunland currently has direct Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) with BMW and is in the process of setting up direct EDI with additional OEMs. Between having direct EDI and FTZ accessibility, Sunland is able to provide valuable material planning services and cost-saving opportunities to our automotive customers.

Foreign Trade Zone
Sunland currently has access to and operates active FTZ space. Foreign Trade Zones were created to encourage US participation in national trade and to defer payments of duties until goods are entered into the commerce of the United States. Foreign goods may be admitted to an FTZ without being subject to customs duties and certain excise taxes.
- Duty % is based on type of product
- Incentivizes manufacturing in the U.S.
Consolidating and delaying duties payments to —or avoiding duties and excise taxes altogether—is beneficial to customers who import to our FTZ. Customers may import into our FTZ zone and export back out of the country without ever entering U.S. Commerce.
Whether you are an automotive supplier looking for Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) space to provide cost savings or a retailer seeking a partner to help you navigate the omni-channel environment, Sunland provides:
