Penn takes a pro-active approach to business to business communication by offering electronic data interchange (EDI) services for customer systems via direct line and van services.

(Electronic Data Interchange)

Penn Aluminum takes a pro-active approach to business to business communication. Penn Aluminum has been doing Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) since 1988. With the evolution of the business to business applications on the internet, Penn Aluminum is actively seeking new opportunities.

Penn provides full service communications using ARS (Automotive Release Systems) software that is AIAG certified. ARS is primarily an automotive software compliant program, but performs well with non-automotive EDI requirements.

Electronic Data Interchange is available in Standard ASCX12 or EDIFACT. Current information transfer documents supported include the 824 Business Document, 830 Material Release for both planning and just in time, 856 Advance Ship Notice, 861 Receiving Advice, 997 Functional Acknowledgement and other common document types. Penn uses both direct line and VAN (Value Added Network) services to communicate with our customer's systems.
