EDI 990 Definition

The EDI 990 transaction set is used within the transportation and logistics industry as a response to a load tender (EDI 204). It allows carriers to communicate their acceptance or rejection of a load tendered by a shipper. This document is crucial for coordinating shipments, as it confirms whether the carrier will undertake the transportation of goods as outlined in the load tender, including details such as pickup dates, locations, and specific shipment requirements.
