990 Response to a Load Tender
Functional Group GF
X12I Transportation Subcommittee
This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Response to a Load Tender Transaction Set (990) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to provide general information relative to a specific shipment. The Response to a Load Tender is used as the response to a Motor Carrier Load Tender Transaction Set (204) which has been used as a load tender.
What is an EDI 990?
An EDI 990 Response to Load Tender communicates the acceptance or rejection of an EDI 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender from a carrier to a freight broker. It contains information about the response to the EDI 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender terms (B1 segment) and the Bill of Lading Number or Transaction Reference Number (N9 segment).
How is an EDI 990 used?
For example, Broker A sends an EDI 204 Motor Carrier Load Tender to Carrier B requesting pallet pickup. Carrier B responds with an EDI 990 Response to Load Tender accepting the shipment. If Carrier B rejects the shipment, Broker A would then send the 204 to the next best carrier.
