210 Motor Carrier Freight Details & Invoice

edi 210 specification

The EDI transaction 210 refers to the Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice. The 210 Invoice replaces paper invoices and is used by freight carriers.

This transaction is sent from the carrier to the shipper to request payment of freight charges. In some cases the 210 Invoices are sent to a third party payment center. An individual 210 Invoice is typically sent for each shipment moved by the carrier.

The 210 Invoice provides details of charges and contains other information that you will find on a paper invoice. This information may include the invoice number and date, bill of lading number, the amount of items in a shipment, the weight of a shipment, delivery information, tracking numbers, etc. Each shipper will have specific fields they require and the invoice must conform exactly to their requirements.

Once the 210 invoice is received a 997 Functional Acknowledgement is sent back from the shipper letting the carrier know that the 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice was received.
