This standard provides the format and establishes the data contents of the Tariff Information (Motor) Transaction Set within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange environment. This transaction set is used to provide for the interchange of processable data extracted from a motor carrier's tariff or pricing information database. It can be used by any producer of motor carrier tariffs or rates to transmit tariff and rate information to shippers or other interested parties. This transaction set is not intended to transmit a complete, legal tariff; rather, it is intended to provide rate information upon the request of shippers or other interested parties. Users of this data should continue to rely on legally filed tariffs as the basis of the legal agreement between themselves and their carriers.
Transaction Set 218 is not present in X12 Release 8010. Please switch to one of the following releases to view the documentation.
