EDI 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice

July 6th, 2023

What is an EDI 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice?

EDI 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice is an electronic document that provides information related to the services rendered by a motor carrier. This EDI transaction set is sent by a carrier, such as UPS or FedEx, to a shipper for the payment of freight charges. It follows the X12 format established by the American Standards National Institute (ANSI).

An EDI 210 document is organized into various data elements and segments. These segments contain the following information:

  • Invoice date
  • Invoice number
  • Order details such as items, weight, and quantities
  • Shipping method
  • Name and address of the shipper
  • Name and address of the consignee
  • Terms of payment
  • Details of delivery, including the tracking number

Benefits of Using an EDI 210

EDI documents can be exchanged securely via AS2, VPN, FTPS, HTTPS, and REST APIs. This provides trading partners with a secure mode of communication compared to traditional paper invoices and email. Trading partners can also automate EDI exchange, further streamlining accounts payable and receivable processes.

For logistics companies, an EDI 210 allows them to recognize revenue quickly by promptly informing shippers about completed deliveries. It also benefits vendors by enabling them to clear invoices without delay and maintain healthy relationships with carriers.

Workflow for the Exchange of EDI 210

A carrier sends an EDI 210 Invoice to a vendor once the goods have been delivered to their final location. Upon receiving the invoice, the shipper sends a 997 Functional Acknowledgement to inform the carrier. One of the benefits of using this transaction set is that it allows businesses to reduce the paper handling and mailing costs incurred while using paper invoices.
