Volvo EDI Non Automotive Products (NAP) Supplier Guidelines
Volvo EDI is required for all Volvo Group vendors. Volvo EDI is ideal for small suppliers with few deliveries to Volvo or as an interim solution for suppliers currently unable to use traditional EDI. With this solution vendors log on to a web portal and manually register and administrate the required messages. The messages exchanged between Volvo and suppliers are for example delivery schedules, despatch advices and invoices.
Within the Volvo Group there is a distinction between suppliers of Automotive Products (AP) and Non Automotive Products (NAP). As the EDI/webEDI requirements are not the same for AP and NAP suppliers, the navigation guides differ.
Volvo WebEDI For Supplier of Non Automotive Products (NAP)
NAP suppliers are sourcing goods and services which are not directly part of the final Volvo Group products. The first step for you is to decide whether to use EDI or webEDI.
If you are to use EDI:
- The first step in the implementation process is for you to decide how to communicate with the Volvo EDI gateway.
- Normally you will have received a request from the EDI group, alternatively from your Volvo buyer, specifying which customers that are to be implemented.
- Now you should be ready to fill in the Register for EDI Communication form and send it to the test contact in the EDI group at Volvo IT.
- On the Implementation information page, you will find more detailed information, for example a list of the Volvo addresses that must be given in the invoice message.
- More information on the implementation and test process will be given to you by your test contact in the EDI group at Volvo IT.
If you are to use WebEDI:
- Manuals on how to use the portal can be found on the WebEDI page.
More information on the implementation and test process will be given to you by your test contact in the EDI group at Volvo IT. If you have not yet been contacted by us, please fill in the NAP invoice request form in order to get the implementation process started.
