This is the letter Fiat-Chrysler sent to all suppliers in late, 2018)





To All FCA-Chrysler Suppliers

EBMX/EDI Modernization

FCA US values the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and managed file transfer relationship that we currently have with your company and we want to make you aware of an important change that will take place soon.

Beginning in January 2019, FCA US will start the transition away from using Electronic Business Message eXchange (EBMX) for file transmissions, and adopt a new solution that is based on the IBM Sterling B2B Integrator platform. The new system is called Enterprise Message Transmission System (EMTS).

There are three options for connecting to the new system:●●●●

Direct connection via SFTP (port 22)

Direct connection via AS2 (HTTP/port 80 and HTTPS/port 443)

Value Added Network connection (VAN) Some of the key considerations for EMTS are:

No file content is changing

EMTS is available over the Internet

VPNs are no longer supported; existing VPNs will be decommissioned in preference of the above protocols available over the Internet.

SFTP will use pre-shared keys for authentication

The EBMX HTTPS mailbox & FTP protocols are no longer supported on EMTS As the first step in the process, we are contacting all current trading partners and asking them to provide the following information:

Current contact information for the person(s) who will be responsible for connectivity changes during the migration from EBMX to EMTS

Your communication protocol choice and port for EMTS (if currently known)

As with any transformation change at FCA US, the suppliers and business partners will be expected to comply in a timely manner when scheduled. Any changes required at the supplier will be considered the cost of doing business and will be assumed by the supplier.

 FCA US does not charge the supplier for the use of the legacy EBMX system, nor its replacement, the EMTS system, but the supplier will still be responsible for their own Information Technology costs as they are today.

If you have additional questions, please contact: EBMXInfo@fcagroup.com

All inquiries about this change should be directed to the above email address rather than your purchasing contact, as they are not able to provide any further information.
