Specifications for EDI 214: Transportation Carrier Shipment Status Message Transaction Set

The EDI 214 transaction set represents a Transportation Carrier Shipment Status Message. It is typically used by transportation carriers, such as trucking companies, to provide shippers and consignees with the status of their shipments. A 214 document may include the following information:
  • Where shipped from – name and address
  • Shipment location – may include address or coordinates
  • Dates and times – including pickup and estimated delivery
  • Proof of delivery – including location and who signed for delivery
  • Shipment status details – including reasons for status and lading exception information
  • Shipment description – including weight, packaging and quantity information
As with almost any EDI transaction, a recipient of a 214 message may elect to send a 997 Functional Acknowledgement in response. Though this is often unnecessary, some trading partners may require it.
