Transport Instruction EDI Message – GS1 Standard Guidelines
The main objective of the Transport Instruction is to communicate the arrangements (through the agreed conditions) of the movement of the goods (including collection and delivery) between all parties involved and providing the information necessary to perform the handling of the goods.
The Transport Instruction will be sent by the Logistic Services Buyer (supplier, retailer, 3rd party warehouse or freight forwarder) to a Logistic Services Seller (freight forwarder or carrier) upon order creation.
The Transport Instruction can include a request for either executing a consignment or executing a shipment. The trading partners need the ability to differentiate between less detailed transport instructions (shipments) and more detailed instructions (consignments).
