EDI 210: Motor Carrier Details and Invoice

What is a 210 - Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice document?

EDI 210 is the Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice transaction set, which replaces a paper invoice and is used by commercial truckers and other freight carriers. It is most often sent from the carrier to a shipper, consignee, or third-party payment center for payment of freight charges. 

How is a 210 - Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice used?

The 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice is transmitted to the transportation provider by the shipper. After the 210 is received, a 997 Functional Acknowledgement is sent back from the transportation provider indicating that the Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice were successfully received.

Example EDI 210 transaction exchange:

Because the EDI 210 serves as an electronic invoice for carriers, it is often the last transaction sent in a load-tender-to-invoice process.

Here is an example of where the EDI 210 fits in within the transaction series:

  1. First, an EDI 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender tenders an offer for a shipment to a carrier 
  2. The carrier responds with an EDI 990 Response to a Load Tender transaction set, indicating whether it accepts or declines the offer to tender a shipment
  3. If the tender is accepted by the carrier, the carrier will then send an EDI 214 Shipment Status Report to inform the shipper of pick-up and delivery information. 
  4. Finally, an EDI 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice is sent by the carrier to the shipper or consignee to request payment for freight charges.
