Other Things to Know About EDI 210

EDI 210 vs EDI 214

Whereas EDI 210 is essentially an invoice for motor carriers, EDI 214 is a shipment status message. An EDI 214 communicates a load’s whereabouts (along with some other shipment details) in the pickup / delivery process.

EDI 210 Charge Codes (L108 Codes)

The L1 segment, grouped with LX line number in EDI 210, offers a way for carriers to itemize miscellaneous shipping charges that they may wish to pass on to shippers / sellers. These charges could include fuel surcharges; reconsignment, diversion, or stop charges; delivery or pickup charges; service taxes; and even repair fees. Trading partner specifications for the L1 segment (and the L108 element, in particular) should give insight as to which charges are acceptable and how these charges should be coded in the EDI 210.
