217 Motor Carrier Loading and Route Guide

Functional Group FG

X12I Transportation Subcommittee

This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Motor Carrier Loading and Route Guide Transaction Set (217) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to provide interested parties with a motor carrier's loading instructions and/or routing guide. A transmission may include a list of the motor carrier's terminals, a list of all points served, or a matrix of all points served showing the advertised service times. The motor carrier may also indicate its breakbulk terminal(s) to be used for each point for loading purposes.
