Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

We’ll update our EDI system by implementing mandatory fields for EDI204 (Load Tender) and 211 (Bill of Lading) transactions on November 16, 2022. Talk to your IT department to ensure they are aware of and ready for this change. Send us a test after you update your EDI transaction sets to the new specs for mandatory fields. This should be completed by August 16, 2022 to ensure continuity of service and avoid shipment delays.

The transition to mandatory fields for 204 and 211 transactions will help:

  • Streamline your EDI transactions
  • Elevate your data interchange to an industry standard
  • Manage your shipments consistently and more timely
  • Ensure more frequent updates
