HOUSTON – August 10, 2018 – Providing U.S. service members with vital accessories and embroidered uniform insignias, California-based Reliable World Trade Co., Inc. has relied on DiCentral’s EDI platform to retain and grow its business with the Army & Airforce Exchange Service (AAFES), the official retailer on U.S. Army and Air Force installations worldwide and the nation’s 56th largest retailer.
Reliable World Trade previously supplied belts and belt buckles to AAFES, and as those orders continued and grew, the company was required to deploy an EDI solution that matched AAFES guidelines. They found and selected DiCentral’s Web-based EDI platform for its ease of use. The ability to scale EDI to business growth has enabled Reliable World Trade to provide AAFES with Army and Airforce ID chains and ID silencers, utilizing DiCentral’s Web-based solution to receive orders and advanced shipping notices from AAFES and manage AAFES compliance forms for its chain and silencer shipments.
Eleanor Huang-Wilson, President at Reliable World Trade, said the DiCentral platform enabled her to maintain full confidence that her company, which also supplies more than 28 uniform accessories to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), could meet or exceed the invoicing, ASN and shipping demands from such a large buying organization.
“Reliable World Trade has consistently maintained a high on-time and shipment quality score for its business with AAFES,” Huang-Wilson said. “We’re proud of our commitment to be a dependable and consistent supplier relied upon by U.S. service members around the globe. In fact, our latest quality score exceeds 93. DiCentral has been a foundational tool for properly maintaining our financials as well as our on-time shipping success – we know it’s always there and ready for us and the buyer.”
As a result, Reliable World Trade has experienced ongoing growth and has recently invested heavily in new machinery with a specific goal to increase capacity.
“Our customers span countless industries and often serve as trusted partners in a supply chain that impacts vital areas of our economy and country, including military members,” said Thuy Mai, president and CEO at DiCentral. “It’s a humbling moment to see that long-time suppliers such as Reliable World Trade can gain logistical reassurances and peace of mind using DiCentral as they help equip our service members.”
