Groupement pour l’Amélioration des Liaisons dans l’Industrie Automobile


Strongly competitive, the automotive industry is constantly in search of performance. The implementation of B2B exchange standards (EDI logistics parts and packaging management, electronic invoice, etc.) contributes to this by automating and improving the reliability of information flows between partners. It identifies and validates the needs for B2B applications.

EDI is a powerful and robust mode of exchange that has proven its worth every day for more than 30 years. “It is a must in the industry”.

The automotive sector makes extensive use of EDI ; there are still many additional opportunities for automated exchanges such as the use of standards between Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, or the implementation of messages allowing the automation of packaging management.

GALIA also carries out communication and awareness campaigns in order to help companies in the implementation and deployment of electronic invoices.

The identification and validation of B2B application needs are carried out under the aegis of the GALIA Logistics Committee.
