What is an EDI 101 Name and Address List?

EDI 101 Name and Address List is an X12 transaction set that supports the exchange or rental of names and address lists between direct marketing companies through EDI messages.

It also supports supply chains by facilitating the exchange of names and address mailing lists between trading partners. The information transmitted in an EDI 101 file includes:

  • Source of the information
  • Names
  • Mailing addresses

Workflow for the Exchange of an EDI 101 Name and Address List 

Most commonly, an EDI 101 transaction set is exchanged between direct marketing companies and supply chain partners. Supply chain departments can share the accumulated list of names and addresses of their vendors using the EDI 101 transaction set. Similarly, direct marketing companies can share their list of leads or potential customers with their partners in the form of an EDI 101 document.
