Abstract

This chapter provides an overview on the use of business-to-business (B2B) eCommerce by Singapore companies as a means of streamlining their procurement and transportation activities. Specifically, it addresses how Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and Internet have proliferated in Singapore from 1990 to the present, and the efforts needed to sustain its growth. Challenges in implementing B2B eCommerce in procurement and transportation are also discussed, so that companies can avoid similar pitfalls when planning to implement these technologies with their business partners.
