What is eDelivery?
eDelivery is a building block that provides technical specifications and standards, installable software and ancillary services to allow projects to create a network of nodes for secure digital data exchange. By building with eDelivery, public and private organisations from different sectors can easily create a safe and interoperable channel to transfer documents and data among each other over a public or private network.
eDelivery enables the exchange of documents and data among heterogeneous information systems using a standardized protocol, thereby laying the foundation for cross-domain and cross-project interoperability.
Scalability and performance
eDelivery solutions ensure sustainable levels of performance and maintainability even as the number of participants and/or messages in a network grows.
Security and accountability
eDelivery ensures data integrity and confidentiality in every transmission through the use of digital signatures and encryption. eDelivery also guarantees legal assurance and accountability by mandating that the recipient of a message must send a digitally signed acknowledgement of receipt for every message received.
Vendor and platform agnostic
Because this is a vendor and platform neutral solution, its specifications are not proprietary or controlled by one vendor alone. Also, eDelivery is available in multiple products and solutions from different vendors you can choose from.
Flexible and configurable
eDelivery supports multiple types of data exchanges and is easy to adjust to each organisation’s needs, since it can be configured using parameters and doesn’t solely rely on programming.

How to start using the eDelivery
When creating your eDelivery network, there are several CEF eDelivery services that you can use.
After deploying and testing your solution, you’ll be ready to start operating and promoting it! If you have questions or need further help, contact us (opens in a new tab).
If you are ready to start working with eDelivery, we are just as ready to help you. The links below provide important information to begin the implementation.

eDelivery AS4 Profile
Open specification for the secure and payload-agnostic exchange of data.
This component enables the participants of an eDelivery Messaging Infrastructure to dynamically discover each other’s capabilities.
“We want to future-proof our products by integrating this new infrastructure. As CEF eDelivery is based on open standards for data exchange across the borders, we can provide better and cheaper services to new and existing customers.”
Ulrik Falkner Thagesen CEO, e-Boks
An Access Point is an implementation of the eDelivery AS4 profile (specifications here) maintained by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). You can consult the different eDelivery AS4 conformant solutions. Participants that are part of a eDelivery network can set up an Access Point to exchange data among each other.
