The EDI 204 transaction set is an electronic version of a paper Motor Carrier Load Tender that complies with the ANSI X12 EDI specifications. The EDI 204 transaction set is used to communicate an offer for a shipment to a full truckload carrier. It can be used to create a new shipment, update a shipment, replace a shipment or cancel a shipment. The EDI 204 document is generally sent from manufacturers, distribution centres, or retailers to the carrier. However, this document can be sent by any company that is interested in the delivery service but is not used for shipments less than a full truckload. An EDI 204 document is transmitted by the shipper to the transportation provider/carrier. In return, the carrier issues a 990 EDI transaction in response to a Load Tender. This transaction indicates whether the carrier is accepting or declining the shipment.
