  • Odette and AI

    03 Jul 2024

    AI mania has infected virtually everyone in the past 18 months and will surely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. It certainly has the potential to take over many of our administrative tasks but what will be its impact on supply chain operations? We have seen other technologies looking for a problem to solve, come and go, but this one seems here to stay and Odette has also embarked on the AI journey.

  • Preparing for EU ViDA

    27 Jun 2024

    The EU ViDA legislation is fast approaching and the non-alignment of the proposed legislation with current automotive industry practices would undoubtedly generate significant costs for all actors of the automotive supply chain. Odette is therefore working with CEN (European Committee for Standardisation) to integrate automotive requirements in the legislation and to protect 40 years of successful experience with B2B invoicing via EDI.

  • Preparing for eFTI

    27 Jun 2024

    The electronic Freight Transport Information (eFTI) Regulation is a significant contributor to the tsunami of regulations currently hitting or approaching the automotive supply chain. It is essential that automotive processes are taken into account in the implementation of the regulation in order to minimise disruption and avoid additional cost. Odette is on hand to ensure that the regulation can be implemented as smoothly as possible by our member companies.

Our Standards

Odette develops standards which help automotive industry companies overcome the constant challenges arising in their supply chain operations.

The great strength of our standards is that they are created by people who are the experts in their field and know the real needs of the companies they represent. They are regularly reviewed to ensure that they remain relevant in the ever-evolving automotive world and new ones are developed to meet fresh challenges as they arise.

We know, however, that the value of standards lies in wide-scale adoption, so we make them freely available to the whole community.
