EDI 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice

The EDI 210 transaction set is called the Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice. It replaces a paper invoice, used by commercial truckers and other freight carriers. The 210 transaction is typically sent from the carrier to a shipper, consignee or third-party payment center for payment of freight charges. One 210 transaction is usually sent for each shipment. It provides an itemized detail of the charges, along with other information you would typically find on a paper invoice:
  • Invoice date and number
  • Bill-to name and address information
  • Order information detail, including items, quantities and weights
  • Shipping methods and descriptions
  • Shipper name and address information
  • Consignee name and address information
  • Terms of payment
  • Delivery information, including proof of delivery, tracking numbers, etc.
After a 210 Motor Carrier Freight Details and Invoice is received, a 997 Functional Acknowledgment is sent back from the transportation provider to indicate that the 210 transaction was successfully received.
