New VDA message 4987 T2 Global Despatch Advice – Implement delivery call-off data – Training

17. April 2024 @ 09:00 17:00 CEST

What should you watch out for and what has changed compared to VDA 4913?

Many companies in the automotive industry are currently updating their messages for data exchange regarding delivery call-off data, i.e. they are implementing the revised version 4987 T2 Global Despatch Advice, replacing VDA recommendation 4913. What is new about VDA message 4987 DESADV? What has been changed?

Smooth processes in the supply chain of the automotive industry play an important role for efficient delivery processes and the associated EDI specifications. The EDI message DESADV is used to exchange the electronic data of the shipping notification or the delivery call-off. Many further developments – supply relationships are becoming increasingly international, different supply concepts have led to increased process requirements – made it necessary to redesign the VDA recommendation. In the process of converting to EDIFACT-based messages, not only the revision but also the replacement of the previous VDA Recommendation 4913 by the EDIFACT-based Global Despatch Advice message is now taking place.

Are you interested in the changes and innovations because you will implement VDA 4987 or at least make adjustments to your specification?
