I need to coordinate how my product will be shipped. Is there an EDI document that I can send to indicate how my product will be sent (routed)?

Trading partners may require that Request for Routing (753) document be sent when they own the carrier relationship and are responsible for shipment planning and tendering. This document requires specific information in regards to the ship quantity, ship-from location, weight, cube, and other relevant information that will help the buyer determine the routing, shipment optimization, and carrier selection.
