310 Freight Receipt and Invoice (Ocean)

Functional Group IO

X12I Transportation Subcommittee

This X12 Transaction Set contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Freight Receipt and Invoice (Ocean) Transaction Set (310) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. The transaction set can be used to provide ocean bill of lading information. It is sent by ocean carriers to interested parties and can be used as the receipt for the shipment; to substitute for a paper bill of lading where the parties have agreed that a paper bill of lading is not necessary; to allow shipper or forwarder to verify bill of lading information before an original is printed and released; for information purposes, i.e., as a bill of lading copy; by the carrier to convey manifest information to a terminal operator; and as an invoice for freight.
