EDI connections are the backbone of business-to-business (B2B) information transactions in supply chains so it’s important to understand how each of these business documents is coded. This post will dive into the transaction codes for the 200 series, specifically the codes categorized for transportation EDI as carrier documents and truck-related documents.
Most common transaction codes:
204: Motor Carrier Load Tender
- This document contains shipping rates, fuel prices, and product information about what is getting sent on that truck.
- This transaction set can be used to allow shippers or other interested parties to tender a shipment to a full load, or truckload, motor carrier including detailed scheduling, equipment requirements, commodities, and shipping instructions pertinent to a load tender. It is not to be used to provide a motor carrier with data relative to a Less-than-Truckload bill of lading, pickup notification, or manifest.
210: Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice
- This document is similar to the 810 but is carrier specific.
- This transaction set can be used to provide detailed information for charges for services rendered by a motor carrier. It is used both as a motor carrier invoice to request payment and as details pertaining to motor freight shipment charges.
214: Transportation Carrier Shipment Status Message
- This transaction set can be used by a transportation carrier to provide shippers, consignees, and their agents with the status of shipments in terms of dates, times, locations, route, identifying numbers, and conveyance
- This allows for better management, as problems and issues become visible earlier in the process.
