  • EDI 204 Detail Description.
    The Set 204 is used by the motor carrier industry as a replacement of, or supplement to, a paper bill of lading. In addition the 204 can be used as a load tender or manifest. It is sent from the company that controls the freight to the motor carrier. When the 204 is used as a bill of lading, it is considered an exact representation of the shipment. When agreed to by trading partners, the 204 can replace the paper bill of lading at pickup for contractual purposes. When the 204 is used as a load tender, it is considered as an offer of freight to the carrier and may or may not be binding, depending on trading partner agreement. When the carrier responds to the load tender, Transaction Set 990 is utilized. When the 204 is used as a manifest, it is considered to be a listing of the freight given to the carrier at the time of pickup.

  • EDI 997 Detail Description.
    Transaction Set 997 is used to acknowledge the receipt and syntactical condition of a functional group. Transmission of the 997 by the receiver to the sender of the functional group is recommended for all transaction sets.

    A functional acknowledgment is required for all transmissions that include financial data. Examples of transmissions that would include financial data would include transaction sets 210, 20, and pre-rated 204's.

    The 997 provides the receiver the means to provide a positive response that a functional group has been received. In addition the 997 provides the means to report on the syntactical correctness of the functional group.

    The 997 can provide a report of the syntactical check at the functional group level (using the AK1 and AK9 segments), at the transaction set level (using the AK2 and AK5 segments), and at the segment level (using the AK3 and AK4 segments).

    Acknowledgment at levels below the functional group are only recommended if error are found in either transaction sets or segments. The level of detail reported in a 997 is agreed to by the trading partners.
    No Functional Acknowledgment is sent in response to a Functional Acknowledgment.

    The encoded documents are the transaction sets, which are grouped in functional groups, used in defining transactions for business data interchange. This standard does not cover the semantic meaning of the information encoded in the transaction sets.
