An EDI 204 transaction set provides detailed pick-up and delivery information for a load, usually for a single pick-up location. This may include some or all of the following:
A carrier may respond to an EDI 204 document with an EDI 990 Response to a Load Tender transaction set, indicating whether it accepts the offer or not. If accepted, the carrier will provide an EDI 214 Shipment Status Message, which outlines the shipment pick-up and delivery information for the trading partner. The 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender set is only used for full-truckload shipments, so it is not appropriate for a less-than-truckload bill of lading information.
