Normally, when you request an SD/LTSD, you first have to tell the supplier which shipments the declaration should cover. This is a common source of errors. Not with Supplier Declaration Exchange, however.
A list of shipments requiring proofs is first obtained from your company’s host systems and transmitted to the supplier portal. The supplier then receives an email request to issue an LTSD for the corresponding items. The email contains a link to the portal, where a wizard helps the supplier easily input all the relevant data. This self-contained process cuts down on the high administrative overhead and error rate that would otherwise arise again and again through misunderstandings and disruptions in the digital data flow.
The software is just as helpful when the tables are turned and your customers need supplier's declarations from you.
