What is an EDI 120 Vehicle Shipping Order?

An EDI 120 Vehicle Shipping Order informs the carrier about the upcoming arrival of a motor vehicle which the carrier is responsible for shipping to a specified destination, or on which the carrier has to perform a service. The data contents of an EDI 120 Vehicle Shipping Order are to be used within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment.

An EDI 120 document is organized into data elements and segments. These segments contain the following information:

  • Address information
  • Location
  • Vehicle identification reference
