What is Costco EDI?

Costco Wholesale is an American MNC which operates membership-only big box retail stores across the Unites States. The retail stores offer a whole range of quality food items, electronics, computers, furniture, outdoor living, appliances, jewelry etc. In order to bring that number of products on to the shelves and makes them accessible for everyone, Costco offers an EDI (electronic data interchange) program for all its vendors, suppliers and distributors. Costco mandates their suppliers to trade via EDI with them to make it easy and consistent to process and keep track of the products being supplied from all over the world and of course pay in time to all of them.
