It is hard to predict the speed at which technology in logistics is changing. In 2015, the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) was the core of any advanced transport management system, but it is becoming irrelevant. Shipping APIs are taking over the shipping industry, becoming the most effective tech practice among shippers. In a research conducted with 200 supply chain managers, 85% are using EDI but 43% were unsatisfied with them. 55% of the respondents believe APIs is a practical option to use instead of the EDIs. The main reasons for the replacement is the need to function in real time, compatibility to use competitive TAT, and big data tech compared to EDIs.
