Purpose: This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Motor Carrier Load Tender Transaction Set (204) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. This transaction set can be used to allow shippers or other interested parties to offer (tender) a shipment to a full load (truckload) motor carrier including detailed scheduling, equipment requirements, commodities, and shipping instructions pertinent to a load tender. It is not to be used to provide a motor carrier with data relative to a Less-than-Truckload bill of lading, pick-up notification, or manifest.

Load sequencing will comprise multiple 204's.  The first 204 will be the Master.  The master will relay the total number of 204's in the series.  This will allow verification that all 204's have been received and processed.  It will also relay the Order Note Numbers in stop sequence. Following the master, will be one or more additional 204's giving the specific BOL and Customer Purchase Order Number for that stop. The link between the stops on the master 204 and the subsequent ones, will be the Order Note Number.
