One of the benefits of electronic commerce is the gain of speed and easiness through electronic delivery of commerce data. Only the data specifying the delivery of the physical goods is not integrated into the electronic supply chain and therefore presents an unpleasant interruption of integration. The goal is to find a way to transfer delivery and goods related data electronically to gain rapidity and reliability. This paper focusses on supervisory data of sensitive goods and describes an implementation of a technique to store these data electronically and to integrate their flow seamlessly into the enterprise systems. It also gives an outlook to further utilization and improvements.
