What is electronic data interchange?

Using a standard format, EDI provides a method of transmitting business data from one computer to another, without the need to retype the data. This electronic link can result in more-effective business transactions.

Trading Partner Profile

To begin the process of integration, regardless of the solution you choose, YRC Freight needs a Trading Partner Profile (TPP), which you can complete online. The TPP provides our analyst information vital to the project and contact information from your company's project partner. After you complete and submit the TPP, we will assign an analyst to work with you to complete your EDI setup.

YRC Freight supports the following standard EDI transaction sets.

  • 204: Pickup request. The shipper (you) sends this transaction set to YRC Freight (the carrier) to request a shipment pickup.

  • 210: Electronic Freight Bill (Invoice). YRC Freight (the carrier) sends this transaction set to the customer (you) or third party as an invoice to request payment for services rendered. It provides detailed information of charges.

  • 211: Bill of Lading. The shipper (you) sends this transaction set to YRC Freight (the carrier) to provide us detailed bill of lading information pertinent to a shipment.

  • 214: Shipment status messages. YRC Freight (the carrier) sends this transaction set to the shipper and/or consignee to provide up-to-date information on your shipments. Data includes dates, times, locations, route and reference numbers.

  • 820: Remittance Advice. The payer (you or your third-party payer) sends this transaction set to YRC Freight (the carrier) to provide YRC Freight remittance/payment information.

EDI Communications

YRC Freight has developed a communication system that gives our trading partners the flexibility to transmit EDI transactions directly to YRC Freight, our preferred method, or through a VAN (value-added network). If you use a VAN, YRC Freight prefers Sterling Information Broker, Kleinschmidt or Transettlements. If you choose to use another VAN, please have the data interconnected to one of the VANs mentioned above.

YRC Freight provides for direct connections by AS1 (SMTP), AS2 (HTTP), or FTP, which eliminate the use of a VAN. You can choose a connection method when you complete a Trading Partner Profile. For more specific information, read our technical tips.
