EDI 990 Load Tender Response

edi 990The EDI transaction 990 refers to the Load Tender Response. The 990 Response document is used by carriers to communicate their reply to a 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender. i.e. The carrier will tell the shipper whether or not it will pick up a specific shipment that was offered by the shipper.

Like the 204 Tender, the 990 Response is used only for full truckload shipments. The 990 may also be used to accept or reject a spot bid request from a shipper.

The 990 Response can have 5 different responses - Tender accepted, tender declined, tender accepted with conditions, spot bid request accepted, or spot bid request declined.

In addition to the carrier’s response to the tender, the 990 Response may contain a small amount of information that is relevant to the particular shipment. For example, it may include the reason the tender was declined.

After the 990 transaction is sent, the shipper will respond with a 997 Functional Acknowledgement, confirming that the 990 was received successfully.
