AWS Transfer Family Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) and EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) for B2B collaboration

Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) is a business-to-business (B2B) messaging protocol used to exchange Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) documents. With AWS Transfer Family’s AS2 capabilities, you can securely exchange AS2 messages at scale while maintaining compliance and interoperability with your trading partners.  You can use AWS Transfer Family’s fully managed AS2 capabilities to receive EDI documents that are generated from your trading partner’s business systems. EDI documents received using AWS Transfer Family’s connectivity capabilities are automatically uploaded to Amazon S3 where they can then be transformed into JSON and XML formatted outputs using AWS B2B Data Interchange. With AWS Transfer Family, there are no resources to manage and no upfront costs – pay only for your AS2-enabled endpoints and messages exchanged.



Ensure interoperability and compatibility with your trading partner's AS2 solution with AWS Transfer Family's Drummond Certified™ capabilities.

Advanced Connectivity

Utilize a fully-managed, highly-available, and auto scaling AS2 solution to exchange messages with your network of trading partners.

Security & Compliance

Pay-As-You-Go Pricing

Syndic8 is a Boston-based SaaS company, offering data management solutions for the e-commerce industry.

“We moved our EDI workloads to AWS because AWS Transfer  Family expanded their product line to include AS2, as AS2 remains the  dominant standard for EDI. Last year we began building our next-gen  product, RapidMap, and did an industry analysis to determine how we  should approach integrations - we were going to build our own AS2 service but discovered Transfer Family’s fully managed, cloud native AS2 capabilities. Transfer Family’s AS2 has instead allowed us to focus on building RapidMap’s solution, dramatically reducing the mapping, testing and connectivity to get business flowing across a logistics supply chain. We’ve shifted our resources to build self-service tools for business users, allowing them to perform technical operations once limited to developers because Transfer Family has enabled us to reduce integration timelines from months to weeks.“
