The author contends that an international trade transaction can typically require about 40 original documents and 360 copies, involve 27 different parties, and require the registration of 200 data elements, 30 of which are repeated 620 times in various documents. His purpose in this paper is to show how the use of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) can minimize the number of consecutive registrations of data, cut costs, increase accuracy and save time.
