EDI 210: Motor Carrier Details and Invoice
What is an EDI 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:
- First, an EDI 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender tenders an offer for a shipment to a carrier.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Common information in the EDI 210 transaction includes:
Invoice date and assigned number
Oder information detail including items, quantities, and weights
Method of shipment
Shipper name and address information
Carrier name and information
