I sent a Motor Carrier Load Tender to my trading partner. Now I want an update on the impending shipment. Is there an EDI document that can keep me updated on the status of the impending shipment?

A Transportation Carrier Shipment Status (214) can be used by transportation carriers, such as trucking companies, to provide shippers and consignees with the status of their shipments.

A 214 document may include the following information:

■Where shipped from – name and address
■Shipment location – may include address or coordinates
■Dates and times – including pickup and estimated delivery
■Proof of delivery – including location and who signed for delivery
■Shipment status details – including reasons for status and lading exception information
■Shipment description – including weight, packaging and quantity information
